    Id be looking to replace that caliper.. Lets face it.. if its that hard to force back in.. Its not going to pop back out easily to operate the brakes or handbrake...

    Yes think your right but to be honest they were coming out fine when pulling the handbreak toggle on calipers before they went back on they have been cleaned up they just need bleeding now but getting it towed to a garage for someone to do it there and have them checked over
