Clutch issues

Hi All,

When changing my front sprocket i messed up my clutch slave. I have bled the clutch once and there was a lot of air. Here is what it looks like any suggestions on how to push the piston back. Do i need to drain the system and then refill?

Thanks V

The piston is at an angle, you need to straighten it and push it back in then bleed the system

You can pump it out or maybe use a pipe that fits inside the piston and gently rock it straight

No, it has come out too far when your friend piled the lever while it was disassembled, when you tried to put it back on the piston skewed to one side

At Your Own Risk!
I might try using a deadblow or plastic hammer to gently hammer the piston straight. Then I'd try to remove it.
You risk damaging the oring seal between the caliper and the piston, so be careful.
