Question about 2007 Chevrolet Malibu SS Sedan New Cars
To fit over the new pads
You can use a "C" clamp and your old pad to compress the caliper, so that the new ones fit.

There is a brake caliper piston tool you can buy to get the calipers to open so you can get the pads in. you can buy these from most car parts shops.

Use a caliper wind back tool which rotates the piston at the same time as pushing it back. Release the bleed screw to assist the wind back. If you use a brake hose clamp on the brake hose this will reduce the need to bleed the system.

you have to fitt the caliper realy tight to get a good hand brake..remove the caliper..With pads in place. Press the brake to push out the piston.Only a little.Then replace the caliper with it realy tight onto pads.Then work the handbrake up and down a few times then you should be ok.Dont worrie about the brake being a bit tight.Just take it for a short run then.It will losen up.The handbrake is self adjusting.

You take the bolt from behind the cylinder and then you should see a 4mm allen key head. turn it and push cylinder in. take the bleeder valve off to relieve any pressure also and while screwing with an allen key its important to know that it is leftr hand thread. :)
