there is a screw u can un do and it will release the pressure or if you dont want brake fluid every where use something to push the piston back, but be sure to take the cap off the brake fluid tub under your bonnet!! hope this helps!!! :)

From memory on the EB, where the handbrake lever is on the back of the caliper. You need to remove this lever, then turn the part that it was bolted too as you press in the piston. I hope this explains it well enough for you.

There maybe, however i've never needed it. I just winded it back in as I pushed the piston in.
