you have to fitt the caliper realy tight to get a good hand brake..remove the caliper..With pads in place. Press the brake to push out the piston.Only a little.Then replace the caliper with it realy tight onto pads.Then work the handbrake up and down a few times then you should be ok.Dont worrie about the brake being a bit tight.Just take it for a short run then.It will losen up.The handbrake is self adjusting.

Use a "C"clamp and squeeze the caliper piston all the way in and it will then allow the new pads and caliper to reinstall. just be sure to check the brake fluid to make sure it is full and pump the brake pedal several times before driving the car to reset the adjustment on the disc brakes.

You take the bolt from behind the cylinder and then you should see a 4mm allen key head. turn it and push cylinder in. take the bleeder valve off to relieve any pressure also and while screwing with an allen key its important to know that it is leftr hand thread. :)

The rear caliper piston turns inward,by pushing,and turning the piston at the same time.One side goes left,and the other side,turn right.Go in as far as it will go.Be sure to line the piston up,so that the brake pads line up to fit in the notches on the pads.You can purchase the tool to do this at a auto parts store.Hopefully this helped you.

Loosen the brake fluid reservoir cap to allow pressure to escape. Use a large C clamp connecting it to the front of the piston and back of the housing. Turn the screw on the clamp to compress the brake piston then release the clamp. The piston will remain compressed allowing you the fit the housing over the new brake pads.
