You should be able to compress the piston in the caliper with ease but a word of caution. you should open the bleedr screw when compressing the piston because of your ABS system. you could run into problems with the abs if you don't open the bleeder. if you are haveing problems compressing the piston with the bleeder screw closed you may have a siezed caliper or collapsed brake line. if you still can't push the piston in with the bleeder screw open you have a siezed caliper.

How do you compress the break caliper on a 2004 Kia sorento


IS THIS A REAR OR FRONT CALIPER?
1. FRONT CALIPER: INSERT A LARGE C CLAMP WITH THE SCREW END INTO OPEN BORE OF CALIPER PISTON, THE STATIONARY END SHOULD BE SNUG AGAINST THE CALIPER END HOUSING: THAT THE PISTON MOVES IN AND OUT OF
COMPRESS C-CLAMP UNTIL CALIPER PISTON SEATS FULLY AGAINST THE CALIPER SEAL. INSTALL NEW PADS
2. REAR CALIPER: RENT AT AUTOZONE A REAR DISC CALIPER COMPRESSION TOOL. THESE CALIPER PISTONS WIND IN CLOCKWISE, INSTEAD OF JUST SLIDING BACK INTO A SMOOTH BORE. THEY HAVE GROOVES THAT FOLLOW A MATCHING SET IN THE CALIPER HOUSING.

How do you change emergency rear disc breaks on 2001 olds aurora


Fairly similar to regular disc brakes except that you need to turn the caliper to get it to wind back in. DON'T COMPRESS IT WITH A CLAMP AS ON THE FRONTS! This will damage the caliper.

Changing the front brake pads on a 2006 Pontiac Montana SV6


no that is only the older rear calipers on gm and others. the fronts do not have that style caliper and sound like the calipers are frozen and may be way your changing the pads. try opening the bleeder screw and then compressing them if they go then you need need brake hoses and if not you need calipers. god luck man

I am changing the front breaks. Caliper problems


Hello, I just happen to be doing my breaks too. Open the bleeder port on the caliper and put a flat piece of metal across both pistons and compress them with a C-clamp. When you have them compressed close the bleeder port and remove the clamp and install caliper. You should always compress the caliper piston with the bleeder open especially with ABS brakes. Otherwise you have to reset the ABS. Good luck and remember to add brake fluid.
