SVT Rear Rotor HELP! NM Installed!

installing my new rear rotors and i can't get the caliper off the stock rotor. how do you compress the piston so i can slide the caliper off the rotor. i heard that they turn in but how do i do that. i only got light for about another 45 minutes so i would like to get this done tonight and be done with it. Thanks.

you have to have the caliper off the rotor and the pads off to screw the piston back in... if you cant get it off the rotor, you probably missed a bolt or you need to pull a little harder... lol

Yeah I had the same problem over the weekend, the rears are hard since theres that shield that blocks the inner side of the rotor. I just spun the rotor while hammering on the rotor till it finally broke loose. Well this is ok if you plan on throwing away the used rotor :)

Just make sure to put some anti-seize before puting everything back on, it'll be easier next time. [thumb]
