I'm the second owner of a 2005 Elise Touring, stock, and tried swapping out the rear brake pads for the first time. I swapped out the front pads a couple months ago, without any problems, EBC Green stuff. The new rear pads I got are EBC Ultimax semi-metallic pads. I got the old pads out, retracted the brake piston all the way in, however it appears that these new pads are too thick to both go in. Probably between 1 to 2 mm thicker than the fully opened caliper would allow...it's very close, so I need to ask everyone if I missed something here? Thanks in advance.
