caliper piston ?
Posted 11 July 2006 - 03:09 AM
I recently bought a 94 subaru loyale as a second car and i'm unfamiler with subarus. anyway I thought would spend an hour putting new pads on the car and ran into a problem on the front pads I can't compress the piston and can't get the caliper back on with new pads . so I was hoping someone could help me with this I feel like a moron I've changed brake pads on all my other vehicles multiple times and never ran into this problem. thanks for your time if you happen to respond:-\

Another thing to remember is once it is screwed in far enough, to align the v-groove of the piston so that the inner pad's pin fits into it. If you don't horrible and embarrassing things will happen.

Wear gloves unless you like bloody knuckles. And maybe some penetrating lubricant.

Applies to ALL Subarus with front parking brakes: IE: GLs, DLs, etc.
wait a sec... that only applies to the loyale's and not the gl's, right??
