"2. PUSH THE PISTONS BACK IN
Elixir calipers are self-adjusting, the pistons need to be pushed back into the body to their original position before the new pads can be installed. The safest way to do this is with the old pads still in the caliper to protect the pistons. Place a flat-blade screwdriver between the old pads, then carefully rock it back and forth, pushing the pistons back into their bores."
