As above, what's the best way to unstick a stuck piston on a shimano SLX brake?
Shimano SLX Stuck Piston - Unstick?
Bump, someone must know
remove pads. push back and hold in the pad that is moving - I find a cone spanner thru the centre of the calliper works and something behind it to stop the non stuck piston moving - pump lever until stuck piston moves. clean around it and lube with mineral oil. Work in and out a few times.
If the piston won't move or the seal fails then the calliper is scrap as I don't think spares are available for shimano slx
Ta very muchly, i'll give it a go.
