Best Answer

Once you take the caliper off , you will need a C-clamp to compress the piston back into the caliper .

Make sure you leave the old pad on top of the piston to help it go straight back into the housing , be careful and do not let the piston go in crooked , it will get stuck .

You may also need to get a small kit , that has the little springs that hold the retaining pins in , if you break one .
