Re: 5000 TQ brakes

  The "proper" way is to use a metric hex wrench to
  rotate the piston back into the caliper. I think they
  are threaded to support the emergency brake.
  I have found that a large pair of channel-lock
  pliers works well, so long as one is CAREFUL
  not to bugger the dust boot. Simply grab the
  piston with the channel-locks and rotate 'til
  retracted enough to fit over the new pads.
  Be patient and CAREFUL!
