BEST TIP. How to tell when brake pads need change.

They look a bit effed from the photo. For future reference, always use the old pads when trying to push the pistons back. That way, screwdrivers and the like are just pushing against the pads rather than the piston. Juicys are notoriously hard to get the pistons back once they have come out a long way though. undoing the bleed screw slightly while pushing the pistons back to release a small amount of fluid is sometimes the only way to do it in my experience. Just check that the brake doesn't then need bleeding after.

wow you are a ass

If you do push them back in without the pads, use a open end 10mm wrench and avoid the pin in the middle of the piston.
