SOURCE: mazda rear brake pad replacement

I had the same issue when I replaced mine. I can't say it is the 100% correct solution but it did work for me. Or course there is a specialty tool for the job, but I used a needle nose pliers and got in the two dimples on the piston face. You have to then push quite hard and screw it in clockwise. One of them I had to back out and in but it did work in the end. The fact they are so hard to do is probably related to the how soon my rear brakes went out (about 40K miles). Hopefully you got it, otherwise good luck. I just had to keep messing with it and it eventually came in. Also, I think if you fully extended the piston and wore the pads to metal that may also play a role in the difficulty getting the piston re-set. Once you get it going, it will pull right in as you turn it clockwise.

SOURCE: ABS, Traction control and handbrake

I have a Mazda Capella (626) 1998 and had similar problem other than it was running on 4 cylinders and the hand brake light was not on but speedometer was not functioning and the ABS light was on. The rear ABS senssor was the problem.

SOURCE: how to change front brake pads on a 1998 mazda 323

Well, get the car up, take the tire off, Take a C clamp the bigger the better since it has ABS. Lock the C clamp on the hammers and tighten. Actually here is my email for diagram it would be easier to describe. onetigerone at hotmail dot com.

SOURCE: how do i change both front and rear brake pads on

Jack up the car. Take off your tire. Find the bolt on the back of the caliper and take it off. This should release the caliper, pull the caliper off the disc. Now you should be able to take the pad out. Replace the pad. You'll need a special tool to reset the caliper. As the brakes wear down, the caliper gets tighter so the brakes still work. I'm not sure exactly what its called, but you can borrow one from auto zone. Follow the instructions that come with it to reset the caliper. Slide the caliper back over the disc. If it doesn't go on, you need to reset the caliper more. Put the relese bolt back in. Put your tire back on.Drive slowly and test the brakes.
The rear brakes on the rx8 are a bit different than most careful! The only way to move the piston back into the caliper is by way of a special allen head bolt that is directly behind the piston, on the back side of the caliper, installed under a 14mm bolt.
You have to remove this bolt to gain access to the allen head. As you loosen the allen head bolt(counter-clockwise), the piston will move back into the caliper.
Installation is pretty typical, again, the allen head bolt being the unusual part. The manual says to tighten this bolt until the pads contact the rotor, then loosen the bolt 1/3rd of a turn, then reinstall the 14mm bolt.

When fitting new rear brake pads to a 2004 Mazda 323, how do I move the pistons back into the cylinders to accomodate the new pads?

Applying pressure will make the piston go back in but you can kick and release the brake before the job is done , use a wire band to run over the piston to hold it tight so that it does not move off, the pads can be pushed into with the wire holding the piston till in place when it can be taken off.
