Re: stuck piston...

Its probably seized up, looks like a new caliper time.

Also do you have the sweet tool for that? Def handy when trying to turn the piston back in!

Re: stuck piston...

yea you usually need a special tool for those rear ones... i hear that cube thing works great... i have something similar to this setup which also works great.

Re: stuck piston...

no i havn't got it, i was thinking of getting it because its only 40euro but you should be able to do it by hand aswel and i can't! i'm going to bring it to my friends dad tomorrow evening because he's a genius when it comes to these tings and hopefully it won't have to be new caliper time just yet...

Re: stuck piston...

Yah, you gotta depress the piston in with a C-Clamp pictured in post #3.

for the rear you turn in...

edit: rear calipers tend to seize up on our cars and die...mine did and i replaced both rear calipers...
