Front brakes shimmy or pulsate

Sound like warped rotors. Has the car been siting for while (eg at an airport ). Does the shimmy through the steering wheel or just the brake pedal? Make sure the pads are free in calipier, calipier slides are prone to sticking make sur there sliding ok. And pistons are going back ok hope this year helps

Rear brakes 05 merc montego

Try turning again clockwise with a little more pressure. If the brakes were worn badly the piston is just stuck from being adjusted out so far.

jack the car up saftely then take the wheels off .. then you will see the brake calipier turn the wheel towards you so the calipier is facing you . at the bottom of the calp you will see a small bolt at bottom undo this and lift prize the calp up then remove 1 pad the inside on where the piston is then put calp back down and put the bolt back in just to hold it in place then when you have done this put a large stronge screw driver in via hole in front to push the piston all the way back but make sure you do the evenly and piston goes in straight or it will get stuck same with all types of brakes. once you have done this reopen calp and take the other pad out clean all area with a wire brush and replace the new pads in place,, and retighten bolt etc , before you start the other side please make sure you pump brake peddle until it goes hard again. then do same to over side ,

hope this is a great help matdav69

When I change my front brakes, I use a "C" clamp to slowly push the piston back in. (You can get them for a few dollars at Wal-Mart, etc.) Make sure you open the brake fluid reservoir while compressing them, as the fluid level will rise; but don't leave the reservoir open too long, as brake fluid will absorb water from the air.
For the parking brake, I'm not sure. I think the parking brake often works off of the rear brakes, so changing the pads should have helped there. Maybe air in the lines? Do you have any trouble with "soft" or "mushy" brakes when you use them? If so, you might want to bleed the system, to get any air out - it can be dangerous.

Rear brakes

The caliper is probably stuck, I had to replace one of mine, drivers rear. The piston on the caliper screws back in, so you'll need a caliper press to seat the piston.

Rear brake pads

You need a spanner tool. You have to rotate the piston clockwise until it screws back into the calipier. DO NOT USE A C CLAMP as this will brake the calipier.
