Hey guys. So today, we were putting on my brembos and EBC green stuff, but in our ignorance, managed to pop the piston out of the front driver caliper. The MX6 manual says to use an allen wrench to turn the "adjustment gear", but the only thing I can find that might be it is what I think is the bleeder valve. So, if anyone can help me on this? Its my only transportation. Thanks.

the front ones can't be dialed in with an allen wrench. The rear ones only.

You'll need a c-clamp to push the piston back in place. It's easy. Don't worry it happens alll the time(piston moving outward). Its part of the brake job.

Yeh, after I posted this, I figured out the you use the allen wrench on the back. And yes, the piston is COMPLETELY out of the caliper, and it was leaking a lot of brake fluid. If it helps, I have auto at school, so I have pretty good access to tools. Oh, we tried a C clamp, but couldnt get it, I will try again. Thanks for the help so far guys!
