HI

I need to change the brake pads on the Marea, not a problem, but on reading the manual it says not to push the calliper piston back in as this can cause damage to the ABS system:eek: It also says that Sky pakard (not sure if that the correct name)make a tool for retracting the piston. My question is whats the difference between using a special tool to push the piston back in or as I have done for years on other cars the wooden handle of a hammer:confused:

you need to open the bleed nipple, then you wot force any fluid back through the valves.
