    Angry Removing rear brake pads

    Have managed to remove the calipers, and replaced one side, but the drivers side piston will NOT go back in, seems to just be spinning round...

    Any ideas please?

    clamp off flexi-pipe, release the bleed nipple andf will go back in easily.

    Use firm pressure on the piston whilst turning. Once it goes, it fairly easy. What are you using to wind the piston back in??

    No other possible way, apart from that?

    Have used very firm pressure! Two bolts attached to a plate, they fit, and turn it with a socket attached to the top...
