    Disc Brake Problem!

    What is the easiest way to get your brake pads on the disc brake apart after you get the tire out and acidentally hit the brake lever? The pads are shut so the disc won't fit back in. Ooops! Thanks folks.

    pull out the pads and use a combination wrench to push the pistons back out. then -put the pads back in, the tire back in, and a credit card it between the pad and the disk. pump your brake up remove the card and center the calipur and your done
