147 rear brakes
Hi....I am hoping that someone can help me here ? I am changing the rear brake pads on my Alfa 147 for the first time and found the job pretty straight forward until it came to winding the piston back into the caliper (to give room for the new thicker pads). Something seems to be stopping it from winding back in.
Initial thoughts are (1) is there a bias valve preventing fluid returning out of the piston. (2) Should I have removed the hand brake cable?
(3) Is there something else that I should be doing that I am missing ?
Any help gratefully received
