Question about 2003 Honda Civic
I can't get the piston to go back in in order for it to fit over the new brakes. How do I get it to go back in? I heard that I had to twist it with a screwdriver. How? And once I do get it to go back in, will it automatically adjust or turn for the new brakes when done?
Ford taurus's have the same setup on the rear calipers and it requires a special tool or persistance on your part with a pair of channels lock pliers and a c clamp. turn the piston clockwise as you press it in with a c clamp or get the tool mentioned below.
Harbor Freight has this special tool... found HERE
And yes, once you get the piston in it will come back out on it's own and yes will automatically readjust.
