    Back brake pad replacement

    I searched but I couldn't find my answer. I replaced my front brake pads with no problem at all. Then as I attempted to replace to push the back brake piston in with a big clamp, it wouldnt budge. I opened up the bleeder valve while applying pressure but it didnt work. Also, the back pistons look different from the front so if anyone could give me so advise, it would help. Thanks

              haha, I had the same problem last week. it was driving me nuts. then I read my Haynes a little more closely and realized you have to turn the damn thing. needle-nose pliers worked like a charm.

                Hate to bring this back from the dead, by man I was getting pissed trying to push that rear piston in. The damn thing broke my c-clamp so I knew that I must be doing something wrong. Thanks for the info. Ill have to see if I can get it with a flat head.
