It must be turned clockwise while being pushed in. The local parts store will have a tool just for this purpose.

SOURCE: cant compress piston on rear brake calipers

Use a caliper wind back tool which rotates the piston at the same time as pushing it back. Release the bleed screw to assist the wind back. If you use a brake hose clamp on the brake hose this will reduce the need to bleed the system.

SOURCE: 2006 Kia Spectra 5 rear brake disc replacement

you need a special tool avalable at most parts stores. its a disc brake piston turning tool. you have to rotate piston clockwise while pushing in on piston. you can fabricate something that enguages the slots and push and turn till all the way in.make sure to note position of slots and put them in same place as was before or the pin on the pads wont enguage the slot

Struggling to depress pistons on rear brakes. Hoave used G-clamp, Made a special tool with nut and bolt. Still struggling.

The pistons in the caliper should retract without much effort. A "C" clamp is usually all you need to do it. I suspect you have a seized caliper or possibly a kinked or crushed brake line (preventing the brake fluid from returning to the master cylinder when the piston is depressed) feeding that caliper - but isn't very likely.

2005 jaguar xj8 VDP parkbrake fault yellow light on, how do I resolve?

the most likeley cause is the rear pads siezed in the caliper frames, when you apply the electronic park brake it detects incorrect travel and disables the park brake.check that first.the park brake motor is also suspect. you should really get the fault codes out of the parkbrake module to help diagnose yhis issue.

Really need all the help I can get. I've been grounded now for almost a week due to my parkbrake that wont disengage from one of my rear wheels on 2004 Jaguar xj8. Could I get ideas on how to disengage it...

I had this problem recently on my 00 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. I had to put it up on a jack, remove the wheel, take the brake pad housing off, and manually force the piston back into the caliper. It could be dirt in your break lines or that the cable just is rusted in a spot and got snagged somewhere. I hope this helps.

I am installing rear brakes on 1997 lincon mark 8 and cant depress brake cylinders

If it is a disc brake with the park brake connected to the brake caliper the piston in the caliper will need to be rotated back into the caliper bore. there are special; tools for this but sometimes a multi position wrench can be used. If when rotating the piston starts to move out of the caliper stop straight away and reverse rotation before the piston comes out causing loss of fluid and air entering .

Can I depress rear caliper piston with G clamp

You can use a large C clamp to compress the caliper piston, but make sure to remove the fill cap where you fill the brake fluid before you do. I generally fold a paper towel to one fourth original size and set that on top of the fill hose to keep from squirting fluid into the engine compartment. Use a brake pad and set it against the piston and compress the metal brake pad in order to deliver even force to the caliper piston.
