Anybody have a writeup on the rear brakes?

Recommended Posts

I just did the fronts, no problem.

In the past I have had problems with rears due to parking brake

issues and having trouble turning in the caliper pistons.

Can the pistons be pushed in with a clamp, do I nedd a special tool

or do they have to be screwed in?

Frankly, I've always been able to push the pistons in with firm pressure

with my hands - and I don't think I have unusually strong hands (for a guy).

There's of course the issue of overflowing the fluid reservoir when you do

this - SpeedBleeder users can simply open the bleeder screw on the wheel

in question.
