Juicy 5 pad re-set help please?
Gahhhh. I'm a disc JONG. Pulled the rear wheel off to replace the tube. Upon replacement knocked the inside pad out. The outside pad seems to fit in snugly but I can't seem to see how to fit the inner pad back in in the same snug manner. Short of a trip to the shop, any advice?
Sorry for the dumbass question. Thanks.

pretty sure you've got to slide them both in together...and if youve grabbed any brake with them out you'll have to press the pistons out a bit.You dont stop playing because you grow old, you grow old because you stop playing

Yep, pull the other pad and spring out. Put the spring inbtween the pads, hold them together and push everything in at once. It gets a lot easier if you push the pistons back to flush with the caliper body. Use a 10mm box wrench and be careful not to bust the post on the piston body.Bike Shop Bully

fatty tire levers (pedros) are also good for pushing pistons back out. Makes all the difference in getting Juicy pads back in. Definitely put them in together (with spring).
Edit: IMO push the pistons out before putting the pads back in even if you didn't grab the brake, way easier. Just be careful.

yeah, push the pistons all the way in while the pads are out. in your hand squeeze both pads and the little spreader clip together the way they're supposed to go. with the pistons all the way in pop the whole sandwiched thing all at once. can be a major pia.

Thanks as usual. Put your advise to the test and it worked like a charm. Wasn't even much of a PIA.
