    • The brake line will still be attached and pressured to the piston housing. Set aside carefully.

    • Remove the brakes pads.

  4. Using a C-clamp or brake caliper tool to slowly compress the piston. This will allow the housing to be assembled with the new pads. If you have a full brake fluid reservoir, fluid may spill out of it from compressing the pistons.
