I'm trying to replace the pads on my 99 Taurus . According to the manual ,I
need to screw in the caliper piston to seat it .I've been turning it in
about 20 turns but it doesnt seem to move in at all.Am I not doing this
right? I disconnected the parking brake cable when turning it.
It should only take 4-5 revolutions of the piston WHILE ALSO COMPRESSING it
bore. If i'm remembering the internal construction of those calipers correctly,
turns in either direction would mean internal problems with the caliper.
