First try to lubricate the pins and get the caliper free to move without unbolting the entire caliper. These bolts may be >very< tight if they have never been loosened before.

The piston may be corroded so that it will not retract enough after you take your foot off the brake pedal. In that case you will have to replace it. Is there not a special tool needed to allow the piston to retract? or was that with a 99/900 only? ------------------------------------------- MH '72 97 '77 96 '78 95 '79 96
