Recommended Posts

When i took my front wheel off to change the tire, my little brother unknowingly came over and squeezed the front brake 👍

now the pads are stuck together. what can i do to pry them apart enough to fit the disc in between?

Dude you're screwed.

If the pads return to normal after applying pressure to the disc, why wouldn't i be able to return them to normal after something like this?

i'm going to try your methods of using a flatblade screwdriver.

Use a pair of putty knifes, then insert the screwdriver and press against the blades otherwise you may damage the pads.

The pads move out a little during normal use because of the flex action of the piston seal. Look up the caliper on a parts fiche to see it.
