First Things First

Park the car in a suitable place, away from children and pets.

Put the car into Reverse, and chock the front wheels with bricks,

Why

Cos you are taking the rear wheels of the ground which are the hand brake wheels

Jack the car up from the rear jack point, If possible get a axle stand under as well.

Also remove Jack handle, so you dont trip up over it..

Now you will need to seperate the pads slighty

Use a Ratchet end to prise them apart slighty off the disc.

The pads wont com out yet but makes the next step easierYes

Now this piston

DOES NOT PUSH IN, IT TWISTS

Get a screwdriver across the notches and twist the piston back into place, it might not look like its moving but it will...

Offer the pads up a few times to see how your doing,

They will need to be twisted Clockwise.
