    Is it out because there was no pads or rotor to stop it? You can use a C clamp to try to get back in the cylinder.

    thanks, Michel...I was replacing the rear tire and the brake pads

    I just released the pressure inside the cylinder by removing the banger bolt, then pushed the cylinder with the screwdriver.

    Now I need to reverse bleed the brake system. Good learning.

    Easier to remove the bleeder screw.
