Changing rear brake pads on 2008 Ford Taurus and a threaded rod located within the caliber piston prevents compression of piston back into the caliber.


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.

@aol.com2001 ls lincoln cant compress piston to allow for new pads


On the front you go buy a large C-Clamp
& use one old pad against the caliper piston

On the rear you need a tool to turn the parking
brake in while pushing the piston in

On the back you need to open the bleeder valve
to make it easier

You should be flushing your brake fluid on ALL
your vehicles every 2 years

You don't put on new pads without machining or
replacing the rotors & you have to remove ALL
rust from caliper & pad abutments & sliding surfaces
and put anti-seize on contact & sliding points

I checked my clamp --it is a craftsman 4" from
Sears Hardware

On the back you get the small cube from the auto parts
store & choose the side with the two smallest pins
& file flats on the outside of them to fit the caliper
piston. Don't think they make an exact tool for the LS

Ratchet up parking brake in back when done & push pedal
a couple times after beelding with engine running & a helper
to seat pads

On the back the piston notch goes up or the pads won't
go down

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

Trying to fit new pads to vw touran rear axle and have pushed piston back enough to get it off but cant get it back in any further to fit it over new pads and disk, wont fully retract or cant get it to ?


Try removing the brake reservoir cap under the hood where you fill the brake fluid up. This will release some pressure also use a c-clamp if you haven't already to push the piston.

Replacing disc brakes on a 2000 v.w jetta


When I changed my sisters VW Jetta I used the follow:
  1. Lug Wrench
  2. Ratchet
  3. Socket to fit the caliper bolts (can't remember size)
  4. C-Clamp to push the piston back in
  5. Bucket to set the caliper on while changing the pads
On the rear brakes I had to borrow the special tool to push in rear disc brakes from AutoZone, this tool spins the piston while pushing it back in.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for an honest rating and thanks for using FixYa!

Changing front brake pads


You shouldn't need to remove the calipers altogether just to replace the pads. You have remove the split pins or retaining springs on the old pads, then prize back the caliper pistons enough to remove them. Then push the pistons back some more enough to get the new pads in. Then reassemble and test.
