You need to apply pressure using a C-clamp big enough to push the plunger in on the caliper.

My 05 ford 500 is hard to start cold


There is a firmware update for the ECM (the unit that controls the engine). This is a known issue for the 500/Montegos. Cost should be around $100 for Ford to update the system

Compress rear brake calipers on 2004 freestar


many fords have "spin in" caliper pistons.

Your local auto parts store sells the tools you need. (Multi sided for different sizes)

You insert the tool and spin the caliper piston back in. (many times, they are hard to start turning but should be easy once you get started)

Make sure the cap is off the brake master cylinder so the brake fluid and rise up as you screw in the pistons.

Hope this solves your problem.

How to bleed brakes on 06 500 after replacing


you can gravity bleed just by opening the bleeder screw, one caliper at a time until fluid comes out.

Or you can go to Harbor Freight and buy an inexpensive pressure bleeder and do it with that.

Rear brakes on 2005 ford 500


On my Chevy, I use a prybar between the rotor and the caliper to retract it a little, once it's off, I use a 6-in. C-clamp to fully retract it.
Make sure the reservoir doesn't overflow!

How due release caliper pressure too place over new pads?


There is a specialty tool that turns the piston as it also compresses it back into the caliper. I have rented it at Auto Zone in the past.
