    What is purpose of Red torx bolt Avid juicy Ultimates caliper?

    What is that purpose of that and also what size torx bolt is that because I am using an allen wrench to turn it because I was tring to take it out to push the piston out as I dont have compressed air but it just pushes in and cant back it out. Any help is appreciated...

    Well I figured it out... It goes in toward rotor, Got it all out and it looks like there are 2 washers on the red torx screw. A big one and small one(I am not sure if there is a small one)? The big one is fine but small one is gone. Do we think that is why the piston got stuck? Also can I pick that washer up at a Home depot as I dont want to have to wait to order it from local shop?

    Have you looked at the service manual? Seems like a good place to start.

    Looking at it quickly I don't see anything about washers in there. There is an o-ring though.
