Some of these calipers do not have the ability to be pushed back in with a c-clamp or even a GM caliper tool....there is however, a small diamond shaped piece of metal on the caliper (Caliper reset tool) that allows you to wind the piston back in,,,,I just went through the same thing

Apply some pressure with a c clamp and screw the cylinder back in slowly.

There is a tool to push it in,but if you don't have it, if it's a single piston you can use a c-clamp if it's a two piston caliper use two c-clamps

SOURCE: 2006 uplander-how to push the rear brake cilinder

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.

brakes are brakes, push in , turn in, or two piece calipers. remove wheel , remove two bolts that hold caliper in place, remove replace pads if rotors look good if not remove caliper retainer and rotor replace or have resurfaced at local part store with service. if push in piston push in with c-clamp or piston tool, if turn in will be solid on top with slots for tool to turn in turn to right, tool can be gotten at parts store, if two piece take apart and put back then bleed brakes.

I just replaced the rotors and rear pads on my 06 chevy uplander now it acts like the rear brakes are being applied and the brakes are grinding the rotors! How do I fix?


I beleive the rear calipers are the ratchet style, you have to use a tool to turn the piston so it retracts back into the caliper, if you didnt do this or didnt ratchet them in all the way, then they will be too far out and will cause what you are describing, basically applying pressure to the rotors all of the time. It is also possible that the calipers need replaced if you did indeed ratcheted the caliper piston in all the way originally.

How to compress front brske caliper


YOU NEED TO REMOVE 2/3 BRAKE FLUID FROM MASTER CYLINDER.THEN YOU WILL NEED A LARGE C -CLAMP.OPEN C - CLAMP PLACE C - CLAMP OVER TOP BRAKE CALIPER AND AGAINST THE BACK OF THE OUTBOARD BRAKE PAD. THEN TIGHTEN THE C -CLAMP UNTIL THE CALIPER PISTON IS PUSHED INTO THE CALIPER BORE JUST ENOUGH TO SLIDE CALIPER OFF THE ROTOR.WARNING WHEN FINISHING BRAKE JOB.PLACE COVER BACK ON MASTER CYLINDER.TAKE FOOT PUMP BRAKE PEDAL UNTIL YOU GET SOLID BRAKES.THIS SEATS BRAKE SHOES AGAINST THE ROTOR.THEN RECHECK BRAKE FLUID LEVEL IN MASTER CYLINDER.

2006 volkswagon jetta brake problem


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

Calipers are sticking


There is a reason that Chevy only made this vehicle for a few years,,, I couldnt get them to fix anything like that. When you replace the parts,, use a full can of brake cleaner on the pins and slides so that they move freely. After that, use a proper brake lube to lube the pins before you put it all back together.

Calipers will not go back on


If you are putting pads on the back brakes,you need a special tool for that, the pistons turn in, not like the front where you can push them in.
