Alfa 147 rear brake pads

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

Hi Andy !!

Sorry to hear about your probs... post it up in the 147 area you'll probably get a better response there !!

Did you remove the brake fluid reservoir cap? Have you got a windback tool?

Helps to remove the handbrake as well as you have to reset it anyway.
