Unable to remove rear brake pads on Volvo V40 2001

\015 Cannot push piston back into caliper to allow pads to clear lip on disk even with a large G clamp. Is it jammed or does the handbrke mechanism affect this? Also these pads seem to be wearing excessively.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 01-06-2020

Answers :

Rear pistons need to be rotated anti clockwise when pushed in.
\015\012There is a special tool to do this with, but you could try rotating it with a vice when pushing them in.
\015\012This is a verry common procedure for cars with rear disk breaks.
\015\012Otherwise the handbrake would not work it they could push themselves in.
