    Question Changing Pads

    I've seen the threads for info on changing front pads but would just like to confirm as to whether the piston pushes back in or do I need a special tool to wind it back in. Just that I nearly dropped a complete dogs dangly when attempting to change rears on wifey's Corsa and I can do without the hassle again.

    It's only the back ones that screw back & thats because the back incorporates the handbrake!!
