Re: Espace IV - rear brake caliper removal with worn disk?

Thanks MadNoel - I just released the handbrake and then removed the handbrake cable from the caliper. Is there more to do to release the adjustment fully? This sounds like a likely cause...!

I'm using snip nosed pliers to wind the piston back, and it turns fine (in if I turn clockwise, out anti-clockwise), but it just stops too soon!

Thanks again for the advice - I prefer the rear brakes on my Subaru, as simply as the fronts!

Cheers, Richard
