I changed the rear pads on my Bora last week & one of the pads is loose.

It is fine when I press the pedal, in that the caliper pulls the pad onto the disc fine, but when I
release the pedal, the caliper goes back out too far & the pad isn't held onto the disc & as a result
is "jingling" between the caliper & the disc.

Any suggestions on how to remedy this?

Cheers lads, I'll try that. I have the proper tool for winding the piston in & out adown home, so I'll do it at the weekend, UNless I can find a bit of timber with two nails in the top of it before that! (very ingenius Oisin!)

QUOTE (johnny99 @ Jan 17 2006, 10:22 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Something not right here, how did you replace the pads without winding back the calipers ?. A new pad will be thicker than the old one, and therefor, will not fit.

I did wind the Piston back but, as VST said, probably too far, so if I wind the piston back a small bit, it should be a tighter fit & hopefully work
