SOURCE: 2006 Kia Spectra 5 rear brake disc replacement

you need a special tool avalable at most parts stores. its a disc brake piston turning tool. you have to rotate piston clockwise while pushing in on piston. you can fabricate something that enguages the slots and push and turn till all the way in.make sure to note position of slots and put them in same place as was before or the pin on the pads wont enguage the slot

Struggling to depress pistons on rear brakes. Hoave used G-clamp, Made a special tool with nut and bolt. Still struggling.


The pistons in the caliper should retract without much effort. A "C" clamp is usually all you need to do it. I suspect you have a seized caliper or possibly a kinked or crushed brake line (preventing the brake fluid from returning to the master cylinder when the piston is depressed) feeding that caliper - but isn't very likely.

How do i depress rear pistons on 95 grand prix


On the 1995 grand prix the rear calipers are turned and pushed in at the same time to get caliper piston in. be careful not to use a c- clamp to try and push them in as damage will occur to caliper, theres a tool used to push pistons in, theres one thats a wheel with pins that sit on the face of the piston and you turn and push in at the same time, lets see if i can get a picture for you, also you can rent this tool at many auto part stores.heres a few tools and a pictures, there is also a cube shaped tool thats cheap and does the job, good day, hope this helps.2_15_2012_6_54_24_pm.gif2_15_2012_6_54_38_pm.jpg2_15_2012_6_55_01_pm.jpg

Hi, Do I need a special tool to depress the caliper piston or can I use a G clamp? I did this on the front brakes but the rear piston seems a lot tighter.


You can use a "C" clamp...but be sure to use the old pad that goes on the piston side of the caliper...place the old pad back on the piston and then use the "C" clamp to depress the piston back into the caliper..this will prevent damage to the piston...also, to aid in this process, you can remove the brake fluid resevoir cap and put a towel around it so it doesn't leak all over the floor

How do depress the rear brake caliper piston of a 94 honda accord 4 door


The rear caliper contains the mechanism for the park barke assembly so retracting the piston is a little different than the front. You need to turn the piston as you press it in. There are special tools to help with this but you can usually do it with regular hand tools. Note the two small deprssions in the piston. Place the tips of your needle nose pliers in those depressions and press the piston into the caliper while turning. Most will needed to be twisted to the right but some twist to the left. Go slow and make sure you are not "unscrewing" the piston from the park brake mechanism. If the piston looks like it is unscrewing, turn it in the other direction.

2006 malibu maxx - the rear brake caliper will not depress.


If you are replacing the rear pads and are trying to retract the caliper pistons here is what you need to do.
Use a piston installation tool in order to twist the brake caliper piston into the brake caliper bore.
If you do not have the tool you can retract the piston by using a needle nose plier.
Exert downward force and rotate clockwise until the piston bottoms out.
Before installing be sure the two "U" shaped slots are at 6:00 and 12:00 Oclock.
