Changing rear brake pads how do you get the caliber piston back in the caliber I have it cmpletely off car does it push straight back like front or does it screw in?

ok try this first get a c-clamp and a piece of wood and compress the piston that could try to open the bleeder screw put if does not compress you need a specail tool .if that tool still does not compress the piston then you need to replace the caliper if that won't work then you need to get a specail caliper tool you should be able to get that at autozone or advaced auto parts they will charge a deposit but you will get that back when you return it .

I can't seem to compress the rear brake calipers when trying to replace the brake pads on a 2006 Mercury Montego, what am I missing?

With a pair of needle nose pliers turn the pistons clockwise to set them back to base position. The V shape groves are not too deep on the pistons, so make sure you have gloves on, in case of the pliers slip out while turning it.
