    Default Following How 2

    On the rear brake pad change.

    Got the first one off and am winding in the caliper but it is winding forever, is this right? Doesn't appear to be moving!

    Help!

    Treat it like a medicine bottle lid...
    If you just turn, it'll turn forever. You need to push and turn at same time.

    Pretty hard, easier to use the correct tool. Also are the two sides different threads? One left hand and one right hand?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    I would say its just as easy to use a g-clap and put the bit you turn on the piston because it also turns the piston as well as pushing it. If you won't have a g-clamp, a pair of needle nose pliers in the two holes, give it a good push in as you turn it. done in 30 secs.

    special tool = waste of money

    Ive just done mine m8, screw clockwise in both sides.
    I used needle nose pliers to screw back then used the tool push the piston back, it turned a little while going back but slipped a bit as the two pins had been ground off for another job.
