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.

Rear brake piston on 2011 Ford Flex SEL. I have done brakes in the past, and never on A Flex. Not for years actually. Seemed ok until I went to compress the piston with a c-clamp. It won't budge. So I came...


you need a tool to turn the piston to get it to go back into the caliper. if you don`t have the proper tool you can use a pair of adjustable pliers to turn the piston back but be careful to not damage the piston rubber boot.

Burning smell and smoke coming from left tyre 1993 t oyota 4runner


This will likely be the left brake caliper piston is 'frozen' and cannot release once the brake peal is released after applying them. This causes overheating of the brake rotor, thus creating smoke, heat and smell. If you look at your rotor it is probably a blue color, which is not normal. However, in some cases the brake caliper that is frozen will not work and overloads the opposite side. The brake calipers must be checked for piston movement - by removing the caliper and trying to depress the piston back into its bore, if it will not depress the caliper must be replaced. The same holds true for the rear.

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 .

2006 malibu maxx - the rear brake caliper will not depress.


If you are replacing the rear pads and are trying to retract the caliper pistons here is what you need to do.
Use a piston installation tool in order to twist the brake caliper piston into the brake caliper bore.
If you do not have the tool you can retract the piston by using a needle nose plier.
Exert downward force and rotate clockwise until the piston bottoms out.
Before installing be sure the two "U" shaped slots are at 6:00 and 12:00 Oclock.

2001 ford expedition, rear brake burning smell after short driving distance and slight intermittent drag (like the brake was slightly applied on rear)


i see alot of bad calipers on these in the rear! so when you get the wheels off and take a look at the pads one side should have alot more wear than the other and that will be the trouble side. when you have the caliper off and the pads off. try depressing the caliper piston and if it don't move open the bleed with presure still applied to the piston and if the piston goes in after you open the bleeder then you have a bad rubber brake hose and if it don't than your caliper is bad. also if the piston goes in from the begging then you may have a defective pad and it wore faster witch may cause the piston to get jammed because it's at it's full excursion.

if you have any more question please ask. good luck

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