Rear caliper overhaul
I have a torn boot and my brake pads are almost down to the metal, so I'm going to change my pads and rebuild my caliper this weekend. I've rebuilt a front brake caliper about 25 years ago.
I've been doing a lot of research and I understand that I can blow my piston out of the caliper with compressed air, like I've done in the past. If I do, will the parking brake mechanism come out with it?
When I go back to reassemble it, I guess I'll need to thread the piston back on the parking brake mechanism, rather than just push it together. I assume the parking brake mechanism will stay with the caliper.
My brake wear warning lights haven't come on, so I assume that my brake wear sensor is probably shot. It looks like that's something I could change out later, without have to do much dissassembly, other maybe take off the wheel and caliper.
