There should be 2 slots in caliper piston,Take needle nose pliers and insert one tip into each slot,will have pliers in open position.spray lube on rubber seal,then twist pliers in clockwise direction.Piston will screw in.You can also buy special tool for this.

Do not release the fittings on the back and simply press. This will damage the interior components and you'll have to replace the caliper.

The needle nose pliers way is possible but you'll probably need to put more pressure on the piston that you can with the set of pliers so you'll have to get a special tool (About £20).

This tool will sit nicely in the piston and the grooves allowing you to turn it whilst adding pressure.

Turn clockwise until it locks then apply the brakes once you've put the caliper back in position to set the pads to your disc.

Easy way is to loosen the fitting on the rear of it to allow fluid to come out, then squeeze it, it will compress

On my 2002 cavalier, replaced front pads. compressed calipers without opening bleeder ( my mistake!). Now I have no pressure on left rear and front right wheels. It has anti-lock brakes. Thanks


You are not suppose to open the bleeders when replacing the brake pads.After pad removal you compress the pistons into the calipers and install new pads after cleaning and lubing the slides.Then just pump the pedal til it comes back up.Usually takes about 3 or 4 pumps.Make sure you didn`t break a brake line.If there were any problems with the anti lock brakes the light would come on.Hope this helps.Let me know.Good luck.

How do you press the brake caliper piston back on 2008


First, take a look at the piston, if it's flat or cup shaped, put an old pad at the piston and use channel locks to squeeze it back in, opening the tool wide to get it to catch the back of the caliper.
If....the piston has what looks like an "X" or cut outs, this is for a tool that spins the piston in with a special tool. (Subaru's and some other cars use this)
After you are all done and pump up the brakes, re-check the brake fluid level.

Replacing rear brake calipers...


Hi there.

Jack the rear end of the car up making sure the hand brake is off, disconnect the brake lines to the rear making sure u have clampted them with a clamping tool *set of mole grips if all you have*

start dismantle the calipers *follow the bolts holding the caliper to the suspension leg*

after you have re-fitted the calipers and brake bads re connect the brake lines and bleed the system to make sure and be safe. thanks alot Lee.

Rear caliper replacement


you have to remove the the wheel of course and take 2 bolts out of the back of the calipers, one top and one bottom. once they are out you should be able to take it off of the rotor and just remove the brake line and e-brake and then put in the new ones in reverse order. you will have to adjust the e-bake after doing this im sure so figure out how to go about that first.
