    Do I have to crack open the bleeder on the caliper to get all four pistons to retract? As I pushed I saw my reservoir raising ( it was low ) so I thought I was okay but I can't get all four pistons to stay put retracted enough to get my caliper back on with the new pads. I get two in the others extend.

    I'm about ready to give up. I've scratched my fender all to heck wrestling with it and having it slip out of my grip as I'm trying to make two hands do the job or three/four. I hated to introduce air into the system but I don't see another choice. It shouldn't take all day...

      leave the cap loose. turn the old pad around and use a C clamp to push on the pad to retract 2 pistons leave the clamp on it and do the same for the other 2 pistons the fuid should go back to the master cylinder. Remove the clamps and install the new pads. when it is all bolted back together push the pedal with short strokes until the pads come out to the rotor and pedal is hard.
