Hi bead_crafts5,
My name is Dennis and I hope to be of assistance.
I have to assume that you are trying to get the piston to retract into the caliper while trying to put new pads on a disc brake. When the pads are worn down the piston is nearly out of the cylinder of the caliper and when you try to get the piston to go back into the caliper it can **** slightly in the bore of the caliper. Center a "C" clamp in the piston and carefully screw the clamp closed pushing the piston back into the bore. While this is taking place the brake fluid is being forced back int the master cylinder and the going will be slower than you think it should be. Just be aware that you are trying not **** the short stubby piston in it bore as you force it to retract to allow you to put the thicker pads in place.
Glad to be of assistance. Please rate the solution I can learn from your rating.
Thank you
NO NO NO Do not ise a c clamp and depress you will damage the threaded rod in the centre of the piston, it screws in clockwise and if it has come out all the way you need to press it in as you turn to get it started on the thread and no need to touch the bleeder nipple it will just wind in . Make sure you wind it all the way in so new pads will fit in
