A large pair of vise grips locking pliers also works well to compress the pistons. It can take quite allot of pressure.

You'll need to compress the caliper using a c-clamp to push the pad back

SOURCE: can not push the caliber piston back to install

hydro...you ever get brain lock...or is it hydrolock?
Mad guy...Disconnect the caliper from the brakeline. If caliper retracts you have an internally failed line (rubber hose). if it does not retract, caliper piston may be frozen, or the piston cocked in the bore while you were pushing it back in. If that's the case you can rebuild it, but the price on most reman calipers is low so you may consider replacing it.If the ont on the opposite side si balky, replace both.

ok try this first get a c-clamp and a piece of wood and compress the piston that way.you could try to open the bleeder screw put if does not compress you need a specail tool .if that tool still does not compress the piston then you need to replace the caliper if that won't work then you need to get a specail caliper tool you should be able to get that at autozone or advaced auto parts they will charge a deposit but you will get that back when you return it .

You need a special tool for rear pads. The pistons have to be turned in, there is either slots or holes in the piston for the tool to fit in, then just turn the piston clockwise and push a little at the same time.
Just turn them in far enough for the new pads to slide over the rotor.

We put a c-clamp pm the caliber piston but could not get it to move--replacing brake pads on a 2008 tiburon


some of the newer cars have a caliper piston that screw back in not press back in. look at the caliper and see if it has a place to put a screw driver in and turn counter clock wise. i learned this on a 2007 honda accord. hope it helps.

To change out rotors and pads on a 2005 tiburon, is it pretty straight forward like most other brakes?


Pretty much... Just make sure the pads fit in with out forcing them. If they are too tight, it will bind up. Go to www.youtube.com for some video's on how to do jobs. Just search for brake replacement.

Replacing rear brake pads. I cannot get the calibers to spread and fit the new pads? How does the calibers move back in..


No do not use a c clamp to press the rotor back in unless you plan on breaking your clamp !!!! On that particular model of (Tiburon) the calipers screw back in.
