I have a 1998 Ford Escort ZX2. I'm trying to change the front brake pads. My problem is that I can't compress the caliper pistons all the way. This is happening in both front calipers. In the pictures I have below, you will notice that the caliper is not flush with the caliper.
I have tried mostly everything:
- Removed cap from master cylinder to relieve pressure
- Opened up bleeder valves in calipers
- Tried using a C-Clamp to compress caliper pistons
Here are some images of the caliper:
