    How the f#$% do i get this plasic spacer out?

    Brand new Avid Elixir 5s. Pretty much ready to go but I have tried everything to get this plastic spacer between the pads out and it won't f'n budge.

    Any ideas?

    If you clean a screwdriver (flat) and gently wedge it between the pad and spacer it should free up the shipping/bleed spacer. Be gentle and use a very clean screwdriver, I would clean it with some brake clean. Good luck
