I replaced my rear pads yesterday and have to say I want to shoot the engineer who designed that #$%&^%$## set up!!! I had the special tool for turning the piston to get it to recede. After about 15 minutes turning on the first piston with no progress, I decided to use my 18V Craftsman cordless driver. Bingo, within a couple minutes it went right in. The next side--wanted to break in the piston so rotated by hand a few times. Then started using the cordless driver, within a minute or so I could smell burning and it turns out I burned out the motor. great. It took about 2 hours of rotating that $%#$%%&%% piston before it finally receded.
Anybody know the supposed purpose behind this ridiculous design??? I recently did my wife's E36 BMW in about 45 minutes combined - no rotating piston-just used channel locks and compressed no sweat.
