Ensure all of your other brakes are assembled. If you've filled your brake fluid reservoir, put something under it to catch overflow. Place your old brake pad in place over the piston and use a C-clamp or large channel lock pliers to apply steady even pressure.

I removed the rotor and brake pads. but when going to change the pads I can not get the piston to go back far enough to put the new ones in. How do you get the piston to push back in order to put the brake...


You will have to use a c-clamp or brake piston compressing tool to get that piston back in, while you have the brake master cylinder fluid reservoir cap off.

On those brake calipers you need to turn the piston as you push the piston in. Of course, there is a tool for doing this. Using a C-clamp or a caliper piston tool, push the piston in, then with the other brake tool, turn the piston clockwise a turn or two, and then repeat with the C-clamp. Spraying the piston and seal with WD-40 will help in turning the piston to collapse it back into the caliper.

A SIX INCH C-CLAMP, PURCHASED AT THE AUTO PARTS STORE, IS NEEDED TO PUSH THE PISTON INTO THE CALIPER AS LONG AS IT IS THE FRONT BRAKES THAT YOU ARE WORKING ON. IF YOU ARE REFERRING TO THE REAR BRAKES, THEN THE PISTON MUST BE TURNED COUNTERCLOCKWISE(TO THE LEFT). HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. GOOD LUCK
