Just come to change my rear pads, and i have noticed that you need to de-adjust the raer handbrake.
I have turned the piston clockwise but this is not doing anything.

Can anyone help?

In theory you disconnect or loosen the cable at the handbrake and then remove the cable at the rear brake caliper. I found I didn't need to slacken the cable to remove it. Just remember the chock the front wheels well before releasing the handbrake. Despite numerous instances of success on these pages I could only get the rear piston caliper to retract with the correct tool. Best of luck.
