Is there a trick to replacing rear brake pads?
Wow, another problem I have never dealt with!! Got replacement pads for front and rear brakes, Niche brand~semi-metallic. For the life of me I cannot get the rear pads to clear the disc. Piston is flush to caliper. I've tried inserting outside pad first then the rear...opposite of that.. everything. I feel like the pads are about 1/32mm to thick. Is that possible or am I missing something simple? I am about 2 put these pads on a belt sander and reduce the thickness that way.
In a perfect world I would seat the pads and then pull caliper over, tighten bolts with the rubber boots and call it a day. NOT WORKING
