    ok so i thought i would treat my audi to some new disks allround and also mend the abs sensor! got the abs sensor in then put the disk on. now i couldnt fit the caliper on and someone told me to twist the piston till it shrunk so i could fit it on. with a bit of twisting and hammering i got the caliper on and screwed all the bolts in..... now the brake is fully on and the wheel wont move at al!!! and i have work at 8! im screwed!


    any help would be very helpful

    You need to remove the offending claiper ( assuming rear) and screw and push some more. Did yoy use a proper brake piston retracting tool or similar? As some other methods cause problems.
