ok i managed to do one side of my rear brakes on my ebxr6 my step father with his mechanical wisdom beat the piston back down with a hammer, i didnt like this so in an attempt to find a better way i pumped the piston all the way out of the caliper it then fell off (ooooh f**k i said i bet that wasnt meant to happen) so now i have a better understanding of how thw whole thing works but its in pieces... is there a quick easy fix for this or do i just take it to a brakes place and copp the bill... is it more dificult because of the abs as the front ones were piss easyt as they didnt screw out....thanks

well the eb's have a wind in piston...

u need a tool that goes on a ratchet that is then mounted on the piston and u screw it back in

u should see this with the other piton that has come out..

dont worry about it u just reasmble it and u will need to bleed the brakes afterwards thats all.

cool and where may i find this tool of which you speak? ive just been f**k around with it for a while and ive got the dust boot back on and the piston part way in just by screwing it by hand and as it got tighter i used 2 screwdrivers for leverage which worked well until part way down it stoped winding in and then just sat there and spun on the spot.... do i need to apply pressure while winding down or somthing?

He is talking about a brake piston wind back tool. You can do it with a hammer, alloy drift, and some big blade screwdrivers if you know what you are doing. Just make sure the piston notch limes up with the tab on the brake pad.

make sure pads are sitting flat on piston, if not they will leave smoke trail after bout 15k's of driving. I have done quite a few rear pads and still get caught out. get the torch out and stick ya head right in there and visually check. just half a mm out and they will start smoking.
