    Rear brakes. To put the new brakes on, the caliber needs to go back to make room and we cannot retract the caliber.

    Tried that. Not budging, can't turn either.

    I guess that means a shop?

The piston does not push in. it screws in. you will need a special tool. Autozone rents it.if it will not screw in it needs replaced

Front or rear? I am assuming rear as most people think you can just push them back. They need to be turned clockwise while pushing them in.

Gear shifter is stuck on park on my 2007 caliber


PERMANENT FIX that doesn't cost a dime or require any tools. It happened to me by accident. Break the detante by moving the gear selector while holding the manual override lever (plastic lever inside the access hole). Once it is gone no matter what the brake switch calls for (lock gear selector or not) the gear selector will always be movable because the mechanical locking mechanism is no longer there. TADA!!! So what if you no longer have to depress the brake pedal in order to change gears. Call it a retro fix.....!

I have a 2005 Kia Amanti, In the past year i have had to replace the Pass. Side Rear brake Pad and rotor three times. It keeps sticking and buring the pad up and groving the rotor. I have taken it to kia...


It's sad that the dealer cannot or will not solve this problem. Sounds like they want to keep having you spend money on pads and rotors in stead of fixing the problem. I would look for a shop that has better experience. It doesn't have to be a dealer shop to find the best people.
Well, in most cases like this, the caliber 80% to blame. 20% is the hardware ( springs and clips ). The hardware helps keep the shoes in place and helps relieve pressure/sticking when brakes are not in use.
The best solution would be to replace calibers and hardware on both sides. Doing both sides prevent from one side being stronger or weaker than the other. Therefore, one side will not wear out faster than the other.

Caliber bolts are stuck


If that is the problem...put your allen wrench or socket on the bolt. Then put a CRECENT wrench on that end of your ratchet....you need leverage....trust me, it will break loose.
