I have a 2000 jeep and trying to replace the front disk pads and all went well until i tried to reassemble the capiler. The bolts will not Aline up with the holes. Have tried just about everything and do not know what to do from here.

Maybe this write-up will help?

Are you sure you put them back on the same way or did you inadertently rotate them 180 degrees?

Compress cylinder with Clamp if necessary?

Just suggestions . . .

Good Luck and let us know what you find!

Sometimes I use a small srewdriver to get the holes aligned. Then the bolt will slide right in.
