They wind back into the caliper.You may have to improvise and make a little tool to fit the lugs.

You can rent the caliper compression tool from O'rielly's auto parts and compress the piston. I did it and it was very easy and made changing the pads a breeze.

How do you get the rear brake caliper piston to retract so you can change brake pads


It depends what type of Caliper Piston it is, if it has two grooves in it that criss cross like a X, those pistons have to be turned clockwise with a special tool or you can use a small screwdriver or I use the complete side of a small Vise grip that will fit inside the groove to turn the piston clockwise until it fully retracts into the caliper. The other type of Piston that has no special marks, you can use a C-Clamp and just put it on the Piston and tighten the clamp until the Piston fully retracts back into the caliper.

If you look at the piston on the Caliper it has 2 grooves on the face where the Brake pad mates to it. There is a special tool to push and turn the piston back into the caliper bore. that type caliper is also used to apply the parking brake. cable attached to rear of caliper and to an arm with a heavy spring. If you go to Harbor freight they have an inexpensive set for this.

Rear brakes (2006 VW jetta) Caliper/ Piston- I am replacing my brack pads and resurfacing my rotors. First we could not find the Triple square (Napa auto parts) but now we are unable to get the piston to...


I had the exact problem today on my in-laws 06 jetta. Come to find out - this model has an electrical parking brake in the rear. The piston will not go in manually like other disc brakes. You must disconnect the electrical wire in the back and run a jumper to the connection from a power source like the battery and the piston will go in.
