pull it allway out steveo, as sheppy said probs sitted up. May as well do it first as last, make sure dust seal aint shagged. if so buy a new seal set otherwise you'll be doing it every week.

By the way shep, hows the camera Wink

try undoing the bleed screw on the caliper to release the pressure and then get a screw driver between the pads and force them apart once you get ur disk brake between the pads re bleed the whole system and see if that works.

If thats not happening i would have though the piston is jammed or broke?????

ohhh nearlly forgot .........see if there are any kinks in your brake hose running from your reservoir to caliper???

all the pipe work is straight and ive taken out the nipple altogether.
pipe has been bent for a few days but its still pushing the piston out so must still be ok.

cant see how its broke not used it since the chain snapped the other week it was fine then but may well have jammed since some how.
i,l pump the piston out tomorrow and go from there i think.
