rate as fixya if this is what you need. Thanks
Remove the brake pads by pushing inward and rotating the pad up.
Retract the caliper piston (2196) into the rear disc brake caliper.

The pistons on the rear brake calipers SCREW in to the caliper. There are notches on the inner edge of the piston face. engage the notches with a large needle nose plier or a large flat washer and turn clockwise (as you face the piston) to turn the piston in.
There is a special tool that is available at your local autoparts store that is absolutely necessary and will save you a ton of time and aggravation. Using a needle nose plier or washer does not allow you to apply enough pressure unless your are the incredible hulk.

You will need a large allen socket or torqes (sp?) socket to loosen the caliper bolts; you can get at auto parts places. Other than that you will likely need a medium to large deep throat C clamp to force the fluid back to the resevoir by squeezing the calipers back in the body. Do this slowly as there may be check valves to over come with the fluid return. I am not aware of other special stuff.

yes ... its a tool that you can buy at any well stocked auto parts store. Its cubed shaped, about an inch on each side, Its used to screw in the caliper piston
