If you can't compress the piston with reasonable ease...you may have a frozen caliper. It does not "screw in" like GM models. It either presses back into caliper or it doesn't. If it's that hard to press it back in...get a new caliper.

SOURCE: 2005 f150 spongy brakes

it sounds like your still not getting all the air out of your lines. it helps to have a brake bleeder but they are expensive, it also could be that the gasket inside the master cylinder is inverted even if it is a new master cylinder this could be the case, ive had four bad remanned ones in a row, before i got a good one... hope i could help

SOURCE: changed caliper on 2005 ford freestar and now brakes are spongie.

When bleading the brakes have someone there watching to make sure the master cylinder never runs out of brake fluid or all of your time spent bleading them will be waisted.

SOURCE: stuck calipers

Brake lines are not releasing fluid back to master cylinder. Open bleeder and see if wheel will turn. If it does replace brake line to caliper

Brake pedal goes to floor


for the pedal to go to the floor there is still air in the brake system. Start again starting from the longest line bleeding each in turn to the shortest line . make sure you have adjusted up the rear brakes before bleeding as every time you press on the pedal the shoes expand right out and when you take your foot off the pedal the shoes go all the way back in. adjust them manually and do not rely on the self adjuster as it only adjusts on wheel movement

Install brake pads on the rear of a 2002 Ford Thunderbird


remove wheel
remove pads, they just clips on to the caliper and will pop right off with a screwdriver.
There are 2 different kinds of calipers that ford uses. on oine you will be able to take a c-clamp and force the piston back into the caliper. ON the other type you have to have a $10 tool from oriellys. This tool will hook to the backside of the caliper and turn the piston back in. ONce the piston is backed off, clip on new pads, and slide over rotor. Should be 1 pad on each side of the rotor.

there is no need to bleed the brakes unless you loosen lines which you shouldnt have to do.

Pistons in both front calipers stay out, both calipers replaced


You may have a leak in the booster or master cylinder. You can put a pressure tester on the system to test for leaks. It does sound like you have an air leak.
You can try to bleed the master cylinder, then slave cylinder, then brake lines.

Brakes to the floor(almost) 99 blazer


bleed the brake again. if the pedal goes to the floor with little resistance, then the master cylinder is your problem.
the shim is to depress the noise when you applied the brake. you can skip that, if the brake works without it.

1998 Ford Explorer brake problem


these rotors are known for rusting onto the vehicle. when you removed them you probably had to beat them off with a hammer. if this is the case then you may have a small amount of surface corrosion on the hub. this could cause your rotor to not sit evenly and cause a wobble. recommend removing the new rotor and cleaning the surface of the hub

1997 Cherokee sport 6cyl 4x4. Just replaced the calipers pads and rotors on the front. Backs are still good (drums) Bled the calipers, however, the pedal goes to the floor and the brake light comes on. ...


often crappy quality pads cause this feeling of no braking. you can bleed and bleed but major companies are selling brake parts that do not provide the type of friction and braking behaviour that the OE manufacturer required. What brand did you purchase?

Brake light is on? is that indicating you are low on fluid? if so you need to find out where it's going.
