As i was replacing my rear brakes, the passenger side caliper started to leak.
I removed the 14mm bolt to get access to the 4mm hex key so I can push the piston back and put new pads. I started to turn the 4mm hex key counterclockwise and it started to leak from the hex key. I kept on turning it counterclockwise and no luck the piston is still not pushing back. I believe that it is stripped. I removed the driver side hex key and tried to put it on the passenger side and still no luck it was not going back.
The leak is a lot and i think the previous owner might have stripped it.
Now not sure what to do?
I think it needs to be rebuilt do you guys know where i can get rebuilt rear brake calipers in OC?

Thanks for a quick reply. I would do a rebuild, but dont have the tools to do it.
GOnna run to an autoparts here in Santa Ana tomorrow to see if they have a rebuilt caliper.
Hopefully they do. . . .
