Question about Mercury Sable
Really better to hitch a ride. Sometimes you might be able to order the part and take a cab to pick up the part.
I can't imagine how this big part is broke so it is hard for us to know how safe it is.

The caliper piston has to be turned clockwise as it is compressed. If not,it will not retract. This will allow the park brake to reset. If you have only pressed the caliper in with a "C" clamp,you may have damaged the mechanism inside the caliper. If this has happened,you will need to replace them.The OTC #206-026 is the tool for turning the caliper back into the bore. I hope this helps,if you need more information,drop me a line. Thanks,Chuck

I've done it and hated every minute of it.
Get a quality brake piston rotator tool. The Autozone 5 sided cube is no good.
you will have to spin the piston back about 4-5 turns until it fully retracts.
The expanding/ 500lb pressure clamps do no good b/c the brake is like a hydraulic screw. You can't compress this type of brake.
Starting the rotation of the piston back will require two people
1 to hold the tool and ratchet on the piston, the other to turn the ratchet.

I think that it wouldn't be a good idea to use en electric arc welder as the current generated by the welding poles could damage small integrated components. May be you sould try drilling them out instead.
