I have the old brake pads off, but I can't seem to get the piston to move back into the brake cylinder. It doesn't seem to move at all. I've tried pushing it back in every way I can think of, and it will not budge. I need to get the piston back in before I can install the new pads.
What's the trick? Shouldn't it just push back in? Or is there a special tool I need to screw/twist the piston back into its proper place.
As of now, the rubber boot on the piston is not ripped, and no brake fluid has leaked. It almost feels like the brake fluid is unable to be pushed back through the brake line, but the brakes worked correctly before I started this, and the brakes were not sticking, and the caliper wasn't sticking or pulling either.
Thanks in advance for any much needed help!
