Having probs changing the rear pads on a 156. Even with the piston wound back in as far as it will go there isn't enough room to get the new pads over the disc. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong here?

Dunno cos it sounds like you've done everything right? Are they original pads? Did you change the disks?

prob diagnosed but not entirely sorted! Pistons on BOTH sides stuck. Got one moving again, the other one is stubborn and so being added to the rapidly increasing list for the gge in a couple of weeks.

Thanks for the tips guys

Are you winding the pistons back in or trying to force them back

Quick update on this. Took to a mechanic mate. He couldn't get it to shift either. Caliper now replaced. Sorted but the wallet is hurting: well over a hundred quid for the caliper!

some times i find you have to turn the piston outward by 1/2 turn in order for it to find its proper threads, then they wind back in easier.
