1 st of all don't forget to open the drain nipple ,
2nd , bear in mind that the rear caliper are fitted with the self compensating adjustment
for the hand brake!



In order to contract the piston I used the car weight to help me!!
dont laugh!!
it works

I lifter the car then
Put the caliper on the floor upside down
Put a wooden stick between piston to bottom car
Slowly lowered thecar and rotated the piston with big plier.

Dont laugh !! it works!!

Good luck
