    Default Rear Brake Pads / Handbrake

    I got into bother when trying to replace rear pads. Trouble arose when trying to release auto handbrake adjuster to accomodate extra thickness of new pads. It sounds simple in Manual i.e."Push the piston & spring rearward with suitable tool. hold them in this position and press down the transport fixing to lock mechanism in the released position". For some reason I could not even budge the piston/spring backward. I am sure there is some simple action I have missed. Would appreciate advice please.

    Thanks
