hi its rare the pads stick to the rotor but obviously this one was welded metal to metal so if the other sides not down to the metal you won,t have the same problem now getting the piston back into the caliper if you don,t have the tool its going to be fiddling but you need to get some pressure on the piston as to shove it back in not to much as you have stated it has to be screwed back in once a pressure has been applied [could try using you c-clamp ] then the slots in the piston insert something that will turn the piston it will locate and start to screw back your going to need pateince as it is fiddling with the correct tool you may need a few attemps but the other side should not be as bad as the piston has not gone past the point of return take your time and check for leaks when you have them all assembled yates210456

SOURCE: how take off pins not bolts on caliper 87 Ford Ranger front brake

The pins / wedges just tap out use a scewdriver on the metal edge of the pin just tap it out to the rear and when putting them back in just tap them back in from the front. You will see they are diamond shape and metal cased around rubber very easy to do just take your time.

2004 Ford freestar.. left Rear disc brake locked up.. the pads are shot but do I absolutely have to change the caliper?

You could try striping and cleaning the caliper then rebuilding it if you are able to get a kit to replace the rubber parts and pistons that are damaged

Compress rear brake calipers on 2004 freestar

many fords have "spin in" caliper pistons.

Your local auto parts store sells the tools you need. (Multi sided for different sizes)

You insert the tool and spin the caliper piston back in. (many times, they are hard to start turning but should be easy once you get started)

Make sure the cap is off the brake master cylinder so the brake fluid and rise up as you screw in the pistons.

Hope this solves your problem.

How to replace 2005 ford freestar rear hub assembly

*Remove the rear tire
*Get yourself an old wire coat hanger (or some bailing wire)
*Remove the 2 - 13mm bolts holding the caliper in place
*Bend the wire/coat hanger and use it to "hang" the caliper on -
basically do not let the caliper hang by its hose.
*Rock the caliper back and forth a little until it comes away from
the caliper bracket, then hang it on your wire.
*Remove the 2 - 18mm bolts holding the caliper mounting bracket
and remove the bracket, set it aside.
*Remove the rotor - You might need to hit it with a rubber mallet to
get it to come lose (rust).
*At this point you should see the hub (the part with the lug studs
sticking out towards you). On the backside of the hub, you should
see 4 studs facing the inward,
*Follow the wire for your wheel speed sensor that is located in the
center of those 4 studs facing inwards (you should see it pretty
clearly) and disconnect it.
*Remove the hub's nuts (15mm if I recall), then swap out your hub
*Reconnect the wire

Use the reverse order to put things back together.

Hope this helps!

Replacing rear brake pads on 2006 Freestar ..piston won't move back with c clamp

I just had this problem myself. I ended up removing the caliper completely and drained it of all of it's fluid. I then held it in my hand and used an 2" round bar to beat the piston back down. once you break it loose it goes fairly easy. then bolt it all back up and bleed the brakes

Hubby is trying to replace rear brakes on my 2006 Ford Freestar.Please help!

I'm sure he is trying to figure out how to get the piston into the caliper.

the piston will have to be turned and pressed in at the same time. You could try to muscle it in with a pair of needle nose pliers but this will not be fun and you run the risk of damaging the piston or seal.

a generic tool like the one above is available at most auto parts stores.

Hi i just changed my calipers on my 2005 ford freestar and my brakes are not working is there a quick fix to this problem

There is air in the brake system and must be bled. They have devices for bleeding the system...basically you need to replace the air with fluid. Hope this helps !

2004 freestar

new calipers now. and i had to replace both discs. Ford Freestar is renowned for it's rear brakes wearing prematurely.

anyway, after forcing banging, and utterly destroying two heavy duty c-clamps, i check forums and found you MUST rent a tool from an auto parts store (mine was free loaner from Checker, just had to give them $80 and bring it back undamagaed, they give you back 100% back). Anyway the tool twists the calipers as it pushes them back. you cannot just force the calipers back with straight force.
