    Default Signum Rear Brakes

    Does anyone know how to press back/screw back the piston on the rear brakes when replacing the pads?

    Cheers

    You need a wind back tool. See the post in the how2 section for all the info.

    If you just try and push the pistons back into the calipers, you'll knacker them up.

    I changed the rear pads today on my 2.t,same process.
    I tried to use long nosed pliers as i couldnt get hold of the rewind tool..although i could rotate the pistons clockwise i couldnt get them to actually wind in.
    15 minutes with the rite tool and the job was done.
    Good Luck

    yep, use the correct wind back tool or risk ruining the caliper..
