I recently purchased a used pair of BB5s from a riding buddy. During installation/adjustment, the outboard adjustment knob popped out. The plunger pushed all the way out and is now locked against the inboard brake pad. I cannot unseat the pads and it looks like the only way to access the plunger is by completely disassembling the brake. Am I getting in too deep? Should I just send the unit back to Avid and let them fix it? The body of the brake is held together by dimpled torx bolts. I usually associate those types of bolts as a warning to hacks like myself. Cable companies used to use those on their cable boxes.
