Question about 2005 Jeep Wrangler
I have a C clamp and need to know if there is a trick to compressing the caliper? I cannot get it to compress!
You should be able to compress the piston in the caliper with ease but a word of caution. you should open the bleedr screw when compressing the piston because of your ABS system. you could run into problems with the abs if you don't open the bleeder. if you are haveing problems compressing the piston with the bleeder screw closed you may have a siezed caliper or collapsed brake line. if you still can't push the piston in with the bleeder screw open you have a siezed caliper.
