I'm having a problem with my rear Avid Mechanical Disc brake. I've read the overhaul directions and it clearly states that the pressure foot can become dislodged, which is how mine looks right now. The issue is that I can't get it to pop back in. When I was looking into it yesterday a piece of spring metal fell out. I think its a piece of the spring that holds the pads in (not the clip that comes with the pads - the one inside the cast part). I don't think that's necessarily related to the foot being popped out, but now when you put the pads in they don't "click" in. I've tried everything to get that foot to pop in, it just won't.
Ultimately it doesn't matter that much 'cause I just ordered a new one, but if I can easily fix it, I can use it as a back up. Its obviously seen better days. Its been on my bike for 2 hard years - though, I thought I'd get more than just 2 years out of it.
