2002 Other Holden Models 6 cyl Automatic
Hi, I am a complete novice and tried to replace my break pads and disc rotar myself after being told its easy, and would save me some money being a single mum.
Well my rear break were metal on metal and the rear right wheel had bad grooves in it and the old worn break pad became stuck while I was out so I had to remove it to drive home, with bad noises!
so I got a new rotar and pads. I removed the old pads and the rotar and put the new rotar on, but when it came time to put the new pads in they wont fit because the piston thing is all the way out and wont go in? I removed the whole caliper thing and tried tapping the piston in but it didn't work either? I'm not sure where to go from here? I can't even drive it to a mechanic now.
Should I just get a new caliper piston thing?
Oh and there is break fluid everywhere now too.
