Hey just a minor issue with my brakes, replaced my pads on driver side and then tryed the passanger front side brake. The pads are in but carnt manage to fit caliper back on the rotor. The inside pad is worn to metal a little. I know i have to replace the rotor but why carnt i fit the new pads... ? Plus the bottom bolt on the caliper wont slip in and looks out by about 8mm.Need HELP PLEASE. Thanks

sounds like the pistons weren't pushed/moved back in to allow for the new pads
