do you have abs?
if you got the calipur unbolted then use a big flathead, put it above/between the pads and pry up. theres also a speical tool to put the piston back. it looks like a cube.
yes ido ihave used a c clamp and even removed the bleeder valve and it wont budge
is the calipur unbulted? i didnt mention a c-clamp.
a c-clamp wont work in the back because of the parking brake.
yes it is unbolted . do u use the screw driver to pry the back side pad out?
yes. thats what ive been trying to tell you in my first post. a little misscomunication but no big deal.
correction "second post"
scratch that i got the pad out now how do i know if i need a special tool? or is there a trick to pressin the piston down
you must wind it back like a nut on a bolt.
so turn the piston clock wise?
which ever way turns in, turn that way
beautiful if this works you will be my new hero
sure, no big deal.
piston does not turn is there something im missin
haynes book says to depress w/grooved plyers
which that dont work
is there a parts store open? you may need a rachet to send it back in.
what kind of socket i or is it a special tool?
does it say anything about the parking brake? i hate parking brake calipurs because of what youre going through right now.
no pretty simple actually a lot like doing the front pads which i did a couple of months ago
it looks like a cube with a pin on it. thats one type. theres a others but thats what i can remember off hand.
right on looks like a trip to the parts store to find the tool thanks for all your help. this is my first fourm and great to see it really work. just folks helpin folks. thanks!
anytime. i was going to be a mechanic but it didnt panout.
