Sorry if this has been answered before. Last night my friend asked me to switch his rear pads on his brakes. I did all the standard stuff, pushed the pistons out , pulled the pads and put the new ones in. Issue I had was there was barely any clearance with the new pads. I barely could touch the lever before full braking engaged. I tried removing the pads, and pushing the pistons out and nothing seemed to help. After screwing with it a bit brake fluid shot out of the throw adjuster barrel. Clearly I screwed something up but I was wondering if someone could explain where I went wrong.
