    Disc brake pistons are pushed in and are barely coming back out

    Hi

    I'm cleaning out the pads on a Deore M486 disc brake and I pushed the pistons back in and flush to the inside of the caliper as one of them was really sticking out, but i didn't hear it pop.

    Now the pads are back in but the pistons will barely come out.
    Is there a simple fix to this?

    Thanks!

    Like I said in my PM, I've never had this issue, so I'm not sure what you could do.

    Have you tried working/pumping the lever a few times?
