How did you do as far as disassembling the caliper?
The hardest part is the snapring/circlip at the bottom
of the piston rod. I used snapring pliers to both
remove and install the ring, although it was quite a
PITA. I'm positive rebuilder use a machined jig that
tapers in size so they can just push the snap ring
down under pressure and have it seat. Trying to keep
the piston rod pushed down and also locate the snap
ring is definitely a challenge. It does get easier
after you've done a few, but certainly would be much
easier with a device like I mentioned.
