Try cracking open bleeder screw & slowly use a "C" clamp.

Having a problem reinstalling Rear Brake Caliper


I am not sure what kind of vehicle we are talking about. not all rear calipers have a screw type piston. to take a stab in the dark at your problem as far as lining up the caliper when reinstalling the bolts get both bolts started before tightening. If your problem is fitting the new pads and caliper over the rotary it would be necessary to push the piston further back into the caliper. if it is a screw type or just requires you to push it back always push or screw it back all the way till it bottoms out after installation it will take a couple pumps of the brake pedal to set everything back to specs. FYI when pushing the caliper back I do not like clamping the hose or backing off the bleeder screw to me it leaves to much room for erorr. i prefer to pop the master cylinder cap off and then just lay it on there then begain to back the pistons up that way there is no fliud loss nor a chance for air to breach the system. good luck friend.

Retract rear caliper piston


Try opening the brake bleeder. Some foreign models have a screw in the rear of the caliper that retracts the piston.

Removing the Caliper compressing the piston.


Try with bleeder cracked open slightly, pry with one hand, and while piston retracting, and you have clearance you need, tighten bleeder. As long as fluid is coming out, no air will enter right?

Brake pad replacement steps for 1996 Mazda Protege


The pins (slides) are corroded, you need to clean them up. Use Liquid wrench or some such to loosen things up, then have at 'em with fine sand or emery paper. When everything is nice and bright and shiny, brake- lube the slides, reassemble. Take your honey out for a root beer.

Instructions on how to change the rear brakes on a 2002 mazda protege?


Give me a call.
1) I have owned a Mazda protege 5 for the last 4 years
2) I have done 2 complete brake jobs on it
3) I am a braking systems engineer.
4) I know what I am doing. I have done 100's of brake jobs on lots of different vehicles.

Biggest issue with the protege is getting the piston back in.
Look at the back of the caliper.
There is a thin head bolt on the back.
You need to take this off the caliper and reach inside with an allen head (I think it's 5mm). Then turn the set screw in there out a few turns. Then you can push the piston back in with a regular piston push back tool. Dont worry if the set screw comes out. Just thread it back in. But you HAVE to at least start it back in. It is part of the auto-adjust mechanism. After you do your brakes you may notice that your parking brake has A LOT of play. After you work it a few times it will tighten back up just fine.

Clean averything well and grease the slide pins with a good quality waterproof grease. There is special grease for slide pins.
