    My cars been off road for past 8 wks and since fitting a new intake manifold plus egr and many many pipes n other stuff stripped off, since putting bk together ive hsd countless problems e.g. tonights episode LR PS caliper..
    I was trying to push bk in with pliers and twisting but it wasn't budging, tried loosing bleed nipple that weren't budgingand for some unknown stupid reason I turned the piston 1 turn anticlockwise.. Dont know why av done it but its not cone out of the rubber sleeve I.e the piston..

    rear calipers can be hard to get piston back in, even with the correct tool

    Are you saying you have popped the piston out ?

    you wont have donald ducked it
    at worst if piston had popped out,its not a hard job to put back in
    Unless you have correct pressure on piston it will not go back in

    I used long nosed pliers to wind mine back in, but you need to put ALOT of pressure on the piston while turning it clockwise. I too unwound mine fully with no problems so i'm sure yours will be ok.
