Releasing Front Caliper

Recommended Posts

Rookie question: How do I get my front caliper to release enough to slide the rotor back in? I was under the impression that there was a quick release pin, but cannot find it. Info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Did you replace the pads or not? If so, then you probably need to use a c-clamp and one of the old pads to carefully push the pistons in.

If all you did was have the wheel off and are now trying to get it back on and the rotor to slip between the pads, I usually just take a big flat blade screwdriver and pry the pads apart, pushing the caliper in. No biggie.
