  1. im in automotive class and my instructor told us "when lifting a car with a jack stand, once the jack stand is in place you need to leave the lever up so you dont trip on it and cause an accident" so my question to you is why you leave it down????

    @MustangFan424 Give him a break. The pistons need to be pushed back because as the pad wears down, the piston begins to push out against the worn brake pad in order to keep the pads firmly against the rotor. By pushing the pistons back, you allow the caliper to slide back over the new brake pads.

    just before you push the pistons back in, dont you have to release the brake fluid valve so it can releases the pressure for the pistons to go back in???

    @momo261086 What do you mean what its about? You have to push the pistions back in order for the caliper to sit flush on the new brake pads. If you don't push them back you can't put the caliper back on because the pistion will hit the pad. How stupid are you?
