Fronts or rears?

Sorry if this sounds obvious, but I'm assuming you mean you can't push the piston back and that you've done this before???

Have you taken the cap off the brake fluid reservoir?

Hi is the handbrake off

is the fluid reservoir open

and if she is a Automatic is she in neutral but i don't think this matters

If its the piston your trying to push back in it take alot of pressure to do this and a bowl of weetabix in the morning is needed

hope this helps

lump of wood & a big hammer !try releasing the bleed nipple if its a mk2 i once pushed mine back with a claw hammer head by levering it with the claw agianst the piston difficult to describe but it works .youcan buy a tool like a set of plyers from demon tweaks that does the job just is it worth the expence .
