    Juicy - replace pistons?

    Ok so rookie mechanic here. My front brake got jammed, so I needed to remove the pad and spread the pistons. Pads were quite stuck, so I really had to rip at them, and in the process broke both pistons.

    Can they be replaced, or do I have to buy a new caliper? $ $

    They can be replaced. Next time spread the pistons with the pads in...at least until you can safely remove them.

    Here are the parts...http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...?ModelID=11972 and here are the instructions...http://www.sram.com/_media/pdf/avid/.../TM_MY09_E.pdf. Scroll down to page 29 and start there.

    You will also need the bleed kit.
