a kit that is avaialble at their stores if you have one close by -- makes it
easy.   Item here:

> Hi all,
>     Located some rear pads.  Dis-assembled brake ass'y - cracked bleed
screw & put a C-clamp on the piston - seems to be stuck.  Any tricks or
things I may be missing?  The brakes a very similar to others I have done in
years past, and all have compressed with no problems.  Is this piston just
stuck tight?  If so, should I be shopping some new pistons??  Thanks
