Having problems with your 1993 Mazda 626 ?

Brake piston I was changing my brakes and I had to manually crank my piston in to be flush with the caliper. I couldn't get it in any farther so I tried to crank it to it's original position and now it's stuck there. I can crank it, but it will only move around a little. What can I do?

Front or Rear?

\015\012By "crank" do you mean "push" or "rotate"
\015\012
\015\012The rear pistons should be wound back in by using an allen key to turn the pinion at the back of the caliper. This pinion is accessed by removing a hex head plug (With its copper sealing washer.) which is about 10mm away from the hex head bolt holding the handbrake cable bracket to the caliper.

\015\012The allen key can be easily turned, and it takes about one minute at the most to wind the piston back in.
