stuck brake caliper

I had just installed juicy 3 and when I finally installed the front wheel - the wheel would not spin. The caliper is pinching the rotor in between. I'm new to fixing bikes and as well as hydraulic brakes. Does anyone know why my caliper is stuck in that position? Thanks in advance.:thumbsup:

Remove the wheel. Carefully pry the Pads/pistons all the way back into the caliper body (I like to remove the pads first so that I can't damage them).

Install the wheel and pull the lever a few times to reset the pads. You should now have a normal gap.

You may also need to follow Avid's instructions to center the caliper.
