Question about 1987 Mazda 626 4 Door
First, loosen the brake fluid reservior cap but dont remove it. Use a large "C" Clamp on the caliper cup to push it back into place. When you do this the fluid in the lines will push its way out the top of your fluid reservior, so you will need a pan under it to keep it off the paint and other componets(brake fluid WILL eat paint). Be sure that you do the caliper that is furthest away from the fluid reservoir first then the other. Once this is done and all is back together, tighten the fluid cap pump the brakes with the engine off untill the pedal is very hard to pump. Next start the car, pump the brakes 10 times, turn off engine, remove the fluid cap and then ,if needed remove excess fluid with an old eye dropper untill the fluid is between low and max.

Your going to need a c-clamp and a block of wood or one of the old pad backings,clamp the wood or backing to the piston so that it can move freely as the piston travels back in,open the bleeder valve and start tightening the clamp,have a rag ready to catch the brake fluid that comes out the valve,if you don't have a clamp you can do this by tapping the wood or backing squarely in the center with a hammer,this is a bit messy,as the fluid is going to squirt out the valve.
