In Reply to: Caliper rebuild in time 4 Xmas posted by Brad on December 22, 1999 at 19:08:22:
: Was planning on driving home for Xmas, when Mon. a front caliper locked on. I suspect corrosion in caliper piston wall. Although it may not be the best repair, plan on cleaning & renewing seals in caliper, and bleed system. (cash flow not available for a new caliper) It'll be a street side repair. Question. Any suggestions for popping piston out if a supply of compressed air is not handy? Thanks in advance and best for the holidays
I have levered them out with a pair of screwdrivers and patience at the racetrack. Not the ideal technique, but it can be done successfully.
