I'm replacing my brake pads this weekend and ran into an issue on the rears. I can't get the caliper piston to retract far enough. Has anyone had any issues doing this, and were you using the Volvo tools (9995782 and 9997091)?
I am able to rotate the piston, and applying pressure it retracts several mm, I need about 4mm more to clear the new pads. I don't think the Volvo tools are required to do this, but OTOH I'm not succeeding. Yes, I've verified that the handbrake actuator is fully rotated. Any clues from someone who has done it? Thanks!
BTW, the fronts were no problem. All around the pads were worn somewhat less than I expected. Uniformly front and rear and side to side they were around half. Not too bad for 27K miles.
