how do i open this caliper

Recommended Posts

So I took off my wheel to true it and then when I tried to put the caliper back on the disk I found out that the caliper is shut. Like freezing shut so I cant get it on the disk. Anyway I can open this?

Put a large screwdriver or small pry bar BETWEEN the two brake pads, slowly force them apart. You will be moving the brake caliper piston back into the caliper body. Work slowly, it may take quite a bit of force.
