brake piston

hi all
i have just been changing my discs and brakes rear on my xa and im having a drama r.a.c

The piston in the caliper wont retract i used a "g" clamp and it snapped in half so what should i do? (i had the brake fluid cap off)
i used heaps of wd40 aswell but now im thinking of pulling the whole caliper off and overhauling it but then i have to bleed the brakes again and i didnt want to do that.

Re: brake piston

The pistons need to be screwed in on the rear.

Re: brake piston

I tend to bleed new fluid through on a pad change just as a habit. bleeding brakes is pretty damn easy and tends to be benificial, so don't be afraid of doing it... Fresh fluid has a higher boiling point due to not being contaminated with moisture from the atmosphere yet....
