My new old stock Marta was kinda dragging in the rear. (pads weren't retracting well)
I thought I'd loosing them up a bit by using the Marta trick where you hold one side of the piston in and then cycle the brake to push the other piston out. And repeat.
I accidentally went too far the oil starting coming out from behind the rubber diaphram on one side of the caliper.
I quickly grabbed a screwdriver and pushed it back in, but it took alot of force and felt like I might have broke something.
Did I ruin my caliper? I'm not really sure how those pistons sit in there and if I messed it up by forcing it back in.
Thoughts? They both still move, but I lost some oil and probably introduced some air into the system so I can't quite tell if they're o.k. or not.
