Use a large "C" clamp and a old brake pad, to cover both pistons.

How do you depress the rear caliper on an 07 malibu when changing the pads


The best way to do it is to open the brake bleeder valve on that wheel, get a

large C clamp that you can put on the caliper and as you tighten, the caliper

will start to collapse, once collapsed close the bleeder valve, take off the brakes.

good luck!

How to collapse rear calipers on mini cooper


Did you notice the brake fluid level in the master cylinder before you tried to collapse the calipers? You should see a rise in level as you collapse them (however far they did collapse). If you're not seeing any change in the level (it should fill up) you might have a plugged valve between the caliper and the master cylinder. Loosen the brake fluid line to the caliper and try collapsing it again. If still no go, start dismantling the caliper and look for bent, broken, stuck or mal-adjusted pieces.

Rear brakes 05 merc montego


Try turning again clockwise with a little more pressure. If the brakes were worn badly the piston is just stuck from being adjusted out so far.

Cant get rear caliper piston to collapse 06


The rear calipers on that model rotate in, it requires a special tool.

If you pushed too hard directly in, there is a chance that you may have damaged the caliper.
