So today I was putting my wheels back on the bike and when I was trying to put the rear tire on one of my rear brake pads popped out and now I can't get it to stay back inside of the caliper. I hear a click but as soon as I touch it or try to get the wheel back on it pops loose again. Any ideas or suggestions?

Can you take a picture looking INTO the caliper? There's definitely some trick to it that I had a problem with as well but I can't remember what I did to finally get it to stay in. I'm sure if I see a picture I'll remember.

There's something inside the caliper that gets moved out of place or something that's supposed to hold the pad in. It was a real pain in the ass and took me a while to get it. I think you have to make sure you hold the pads apart or make sure you push in the brake pistons or something like that.

So it working after I took my head out of my ass and realized the pad closest to the piston was getting stuck between the mounting bracket and pad assembly once I fixed that the pads slid into place.
