SOURCE: can not compress the rear
there is a special tool needed for it but u can use a pair of vice grips to do it... but more or less u have to turn the piston counter clock wise and piston will go back into the caliper

They pull off just like any other vehicle, unless you live in an area where they use salt. Brake and suspension parts on these rust and sieze quickly. Soak with penetrating oil and keep tapping around perimiter. I do this for a living, and I've had Torrent drums take me hours to break loose (I'm surprised the wheels even came off)

Open the hatch and look at the back of the brake light assembly, you will see 2 plastic disks with a little slot in the bottom, insert a flat screwdriver into the slots and pop these disks off, they pop off easily Under the disks are phillips head screws, remove both screws Now, you can't see them, but there are 2 pins built into the brake light assembly which extend into sockets in the body of the car, to remove the assembly, wiggle the entire assembly and push outward TO THE SIDE, NOT toward you, this will wiggle the pins free and the entire assembly will come free once the assembly is free you will see 3 plugs, the top 2 are the brake light bulbs, twist the plugs 1/4 turn and pull them out, now you can see the bulbs, just pull them out and replace them

SOURCE: no heat 2006 pontiac torrent awd
your air damper or diverter may not be working.this is basically a mechanism that opens a flap by your heater core to control the amount of hot air that comes out.There is a rod that this flapper pivots on and if this rod is broken or the motor that operates it is not working you will either have heat all the time or no heat at all depending on which position it broke at.I know because my torrent has the same problem.To fix my problem they have to remove the dashboard to access the heater core which amounts to major $$$. I hope your problem is an easier fix. good luck

Testimonial: "yes it was thank you heatermode door was broken"
Ok! here is the solution ...
After changing the pad dont try to push back the piston the old fashioned way or you will broke the caliper casting.
This new kind of break should be only twisted clockwise to bring the piston back to its position you can use only long nose pliers to rotate the piston since there is two cavity on the piston for this use.
Also after setting the piston back to it's position take care of the seal around the piston be shure before replacing the caliper over the disk that the seal will not go between the disk and the pad...
slide the pads gently to it's position and that's it.
