Question about 2006 Honda Civic Hybrid
It's a 2006 Honda Civic Ex with rear disc brakes. We can get the calliper off but when we assemble it we can't push the piston back in.
There is a special tool to press the rear brake caliper back in on you vehicle. You can "borrow" it from Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts. Basically because of the parking brake, you have to press the caliper back in and at the same time screw it in. I know that might sound confussing but when you see the tool they will loan you, it will make sense. It's pretty easy to do with the right tools. I have however taken the hard route before and used a C clamp and pair of needle nose to get it worked out. Hope this helps. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

I know they make a tool for everything, but I got the piston to retract by using a large screw driver and truning it back in. Took 5 minutes for both.
