Re: rear caliper problem..HELP!
The piston needs to rotate in or you may damage it. If you were to open the bleeder it may rotate in easier.
This is because the mechanical brake function in the rear.
The piston face has a spanner tool provision but can be rotated in carefully with some
needle nose pliers or a inexpensive universal tool that looks like this.
Not using the proper tool you stand the risk of tearing the boot seal.
