Help 147 braking drama

I've got lovely a 147. With not so lovely brakes. I cannot get the rear piston to return on the caliper in order to fit new pads. I am wondering if it is because of the handbrake mechanism. suggestions to roblarder@yahoo.com

Re: 147 braking drama

You need to wind the caliper piston back in. There are various ways to do it but a wind-back tool from halfrauds is the simplest.

Good luck!
