Question about 2006 Volkswagen Jetta
I have a 2006 volkswagon jetta tdi and i would like to know how to push the caliper piston back into the caliper to install new pads
A SIX INCH C-CLAMP, PURCHASED AT THE AUTO PARTS STORE, IS NEEDED TO PUSH THE PISTON INTO THE CALIPER AS LONG AS IT IS THE FRONT BRAKES THAT YOU ARE WORKING ON. IF YOU ARE REFERRING TO THE REAR BRAKES, THEN THE PISTON MUST BE TURNED COUNTERCLOCKWISE(TO THE LEFT). HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. GOOD LUCK

If you have topped up the brake fluid, you may need to loosen the cap and place a rag around to catch fluid as it is pushed back into the system. As noted, push the piston back in with a clamp on the front or push and turn the rear (i thot is was clockwise). Fronts I usually pry between the pad and piston before removing so the piston is pushed back without a clamp.
