The pads of my brakes are way too close together at a point where inserting the disc in between is almost impossible... its like if the brake lever was always pulled. Is there a way to adjust them so the pads are more spaced?

yes..you can just push them back until the pistons are completely inside the caliper... use a tire lever or something similar to push them back..

EDIT: it takes a little force, but if they don't move after a couple of attempts, the system might be overfiilled... for this you would need to open the bleed hole at the lever and push the pistons again...some fluid might come out though.. so make sure you clean everything that get's sprayed... DOT fluid is nasty on paint...

Now i got a small leak from the bleed screw. Very small though, i check every 10 minutes and there always oil around the screw. I wipe it off but each time i go see theres more. EDIT: Never mind, it stopped, probably just some remaining behind the screw.
