Yes. The piston notches should be at 6:00 and 12:00. Good thinking. I don't think that most people think of that without a FSM.Thanks..the needle nose pliers worked wonderfully....Easy to turn in...much easier than pushing it in... I also lined up the notch on the pad to fit in the groove in the piston....was I supposed to do that?
On a side note, the other side I couldn't get one of the lug nuts off, I cracked the lug wrench that came with the car..I had an impact wrench that wouldn't even budge it.. Had to go to car-x for them to do the passenger side. I didnt want to spend any more time on brakes...If the bolt would break, I didnt want to mess with it... $68.00 ohh well. I tried..
Impact wrenches come in different max torque outputs. They don't loose power with age.The Car-X across the street was willing to use my parts and do the job for that one wheel. Their impact wrench worked to remove the one lugnut. The one I had must have been too old. Do they lose power with age?
