SOURCE: How do you compress rear brake caliper?

Dear Sir/madam,

The pistons on the rear brake calipers SCREW in to the caliper. There are notches on the inner edge of the piston face. engage the notches with a large needle nose plier or a large flat washer and turn clockwise (as you face the piston) to turn the piston in.
There is a special tool that is available at your local autoparts store that is absolutely necessary and will save you a ton of time and aggravation. Using a needle nose plier or washer does not allow you to apply enough pressure unless your are the incredible hulk.

Good luck

No, just a 14mm wrench or socket to remove the lower caliper bolt, swing the caliper up and slide the pads out. Compress the caliper piston with large slip joint pliers. Lubricate the pad ends where they touch the slides and install new pads.

SOURCE: 2005 Outlander has now new rear brake shoes and

Under the center console is a Y in the cable that leads under and around the top/rear side of the brake handle. At the top/rear of the handle is a locknut and threaded shaft to adjust tension.

Be sure to not have any drag on the brakes when you are done adjusting!

I replaced the rear brakes in my 2000 jetta and I had to rent the tool kit from an auto parts store. There are special tools that are needed. Ask you local auto sales shop and you can rent them for like 25 dollars.

It all depends on what type, some are bolts, some are torx type, and some are allen wrench type.
On the back pads you need a special tool to press in the piston, cause the back ones need to be turned in, not pressed in like the front. At any rate, the bolts are metric.

Rear Brakes 2005 Jetta

im sorry bro i find that you needing special tools a load of bs. i may be wrong but i really really doubt it. brakes are easy. first locate the caliper and there should be 2 bolts holding that tight. loosen the top bolt and then take out the lower bolt from the caliper. the old pads should just fall out. remove the master cylinder cap. (the jug with brake fluid in it.) compress the piston replace the old pads and push the claiper back down on the rotor. tighten bolts back up pump the brakes till hard with the car off and then repeat for the other side.
