On the 1995 grand prix the rear calipers are turned and pushed in at the same time to get caliper piston in. be careful not to use a c- clamp to try and push them in as damage will occur to caliper, theres a tool used to push pistons in, theres one thats a wheel with pins that sit on the face of the piston and you turn and push in at the same time, lets see if i can get a picture for you, also you can rent this tool at many auto part stores.heres a few tools and a pictures, there is also a cube shaped tool thats cheap and does the job, good day, hope this helps.how do i depress rear pistons on 95 grand prix - 2_15_2012_6_54_24_pm.gif2_15_2012_6_54_38_how do i depress rear pistons on 95 grand prix - 2_15_2012_6_55_01_pm.jpgimg src=

I hope you mean the rear brakes and the not the engine pistons ,well for the rear calipers you go the autofactor and buy a special tool that clamps and turns all at the same time to wind the pistons in ,simple with the right tool .

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

Use a large "C" clamp, or a large pair of channellocks.

My left rear wheel locked up and won't turn. on my 1995 pontiac grand prix. but when I look up my car it looks like the 1996 grand prix.


they look the same. your problem is either an emergency brake thats locked or a bad wheel bearing thats locked up. have you smelled brakes burning? if so,then i would say a brake issue. if not have you heard a squeling sound coming from the rear of car? if so then wheel bearings bad. either way the tire has to come off to look and see which it is.either one of these solutions can be your problem. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

I cant get the rear brake piston to go back in so i can put the new pads on


i use a 6 inch c clamp and the old brake pad as a plate u can also loosen the bleeder on the calipar and that will make it go back in easer if you loosen the bleeder you may have to bleed the brakes if it still dont move the piston is frooze or stuck and should be replaced.

Rear piston seen to be frooze do you crank them in or depress them


Both, I have found the best way and the easiest way is to use a C clamp and let them depress themselves in with pressure. The end of the C clamp will rotate with the piston.

How do i change the brake pads on a 2005 grand prix pontiac


remove the caliper, by removing the two holding bolts, then use a old brake pad against the pistons and a c clamp and push piston all the way in, next is to clean and lube pad mounting surface and the caliper slide pin, then install new pads on bracket then caliper and tighten caliper bolts, heres a diagram to help you,98c6b31.jpg150490f.jpg

How to Fully retract piston into caliper body using a "C" clamp


The rear brakes on the 2004 need to be compressed with a special tool available at any parts store. You need to "screw" the caliper piston in instead of pushing it in with the "C" clamp.

Breaks on a 2006 Grand Prix


Rear disc brakes have to also apply the parking brakes.
To do that, they must not retract too far.
That is accomplished with a one way ratched down the center of the piston, on the back side.
So most rear pistons have to be rotated CW in order to retract down this spiral ratchet.
Not sure exactly how Pontiac works, but there is probably a large slot in the piston to allow for this.

Can't get rear caliper piston in


YOU WILL NEED A SPECIAL TOOL TO TURN THE PISTON BACK INTO THE CALIPER. TURN IT CLOCKWISE WHILE PUSHING INWARD ON THE PISTON.

Brake Piston on 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee


You need to use a large "C" clamp to depress the caliper/piston

Similar to as shown here ..

The "nozzle" that you speak of is the brake bleeder .. opening that will not release the piston pressure ..
