    New question here. BB7 piston fell out of caliper and I can't get it back in...

    While trying to clean mud and grit out of my rear Avid BB7 caliper I had one of the pistons fall out of place and I can't get it to screw back in. I also can't get it out of the brake pad area to get a better look at it either.

    How do I get the plunger to screw back into the caliper?

    Bikinfoolferlife,

    Yeah, I bet it was a redundant post. It's just there is so much info on this forum that using the search feature, as I did, returned so many posts that didn't include what I was looking for. I felt the only way I would timely solve this is by finding someone that had already bookmarked it.

    No problem, the search function sucks.

    Have any of you experienced a rumbling when getting on the brakes hard with BB7s? I've noticed a bit of looseness in the actuating arm on my front caliper. Is this normal with this setup?
