    Are you sure this is the way to do it on this modle (Lancia Lybra)?

    Its not that I havent changed brakes before ... deone it a thousand times, however this brake piston refuses to go down.

    Might it have to be screwed or somthing?

I use a C clamp to push the piston back in.

    If it is a normal brake cylinder with a booted piston than you have to push the piston back into the cylinder to make room for the new pads. Use the clamp but if it doesn't move do not use excessive pressure and damage the unit. Good luck.

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.

Trying to fit new pads to vw touran rear axle and have pushed piston back enough to get it off but cant get it back in any further to fit it over new pads and disk, wont fully retract or cant get it to ?


Try removing the brake reservoir cap under the hood where you fill the brake fluid up. This will release some pressure also use a c-clamp if you haven't already to push the piston.

1992 olds 98 front brakes dragging, brakes were


the problem is more than likely the brake hose have collapsed not letting the pressure of the pistons. try changing these and if you still have this problem the pistons could be hanging up, but not likely.

Need help replacing rear disc brakes on a 2006 XJR. I cannot get the brake piston to retract. Does it rotate?


Have you tried releasing the pressure within the brake cylinder. You will need to do this by loosening the bleeder valve or loosening the brake line going to the caliper.

Brakes


If its the front brakes you are working on and the piston won't retract into the caliper then you need a new caliper, or both actually. Calipers need to be replaced in pairs. If you are working on the rear then you need a special tool to turn the piston back into the caliper. you can get the rear disc brake tool at any auto parts store. Turn the piston clockwise to retract it, and pay attention to the little spots cut out of the piston that the tool grabs to turn it. They need to be at the top and bottom of the piston once you fully retract it or the little pin at the bottom of the inside brake pad wont sit against the piston. And once again if it still wont retract then you need to replace both calipers. Once you are finished you need to pump up the brake pedal and then pull up the parking brake lever and release it 10 to 20 times to adjust the piston.
