Rear disc piston return

How do I push the piston back in the caliper on the rear disc of a 2000 Buick Lesabre? Does it turn in with some tool or push in like the front? Thanks!!

    I found out since I posted this. this piston uses a tool to turn the piston in clockwise. I found out that it's this way because of the parking brake set up. Won't just push in like the front!

You can push the caliper piston in using a large C-clamp with a small piece of wood a little larger than the piston. Be sure that the cap is off the master cylinder and that the fluid doesn't overflow. I usually remove a little beforehand. Hope this helps and good luck.

How do i push piston back in when changing rear break pads


Rear Disc Brake Caliper ?

There is a small tool to turn the caliper pistons
in or retract (that is actually the barking brake)

You also have to push the piston in, after you screw
in the piston,for that you open the bleeder & make sure
you have something across the caliper ,so your not pushing
on the piston with any clamp or other tool

May push in by hand- IF- the bleeder is open

Lots of video you can watch on You Tube

2000 buick lesabre with abs-low brake pedal after changing all 4 rotors and pads. did not open the hydraulic system


When changing pads and you push the caliper in for the new pad you should open the bleed screws. , then close and re-assemble. press pedal and open bleed screw and let it drip a little . gravity bleed. Did you turn the read caliper piston in and then press it down? The rear piston must be aligned with the pad. Did you pump the parking brake to reset?

Steps to replacing rear brake pads


A special tool is required to compress the caliper piston on the rear brakes-don't use a C-clamp on the piston.
Raise the vehicle and remove the tire. The rear calipers have only one guide pin. Remove this pin and raise the caliper. Remove the old brake pads. Using the special tool compress the caliper piston-the piston will have one or two slots on it. These slots must in the correct position to remount the caliper. Install the new brake pads and slide the caliper back over the rotor and replace the guide pin. If the caliper doesn't slide over the rotor you'll need to reset the slots on the piston. Replace the tires and you're ready to go.

I am changing rear disc brakes and can not get the caliper piston to push in. Do I need a special tool? I am using a c-clamp.


the rear pistons need to be turned and pushed in at the same time, and yes there is a tool made just for this but you can do it with a c clamp and channel lock pliers

Change rear break pads on 2000 Buick. Cannot compress break cylinder in order to install new pads using C clamp and bleeding off break fluid.


There's a special tool required to compress the rear caliper pistons. You may want to rent the tool. If you look at the piston you'll see one or two notches. The special tool has nipples to fit these notches. The caliper piston will have to be compressed with the tool and the notches will have to be placed in the o'clock and 6 o'clock for the brake pads to slide over the rotor. If you rent the special tool have the renter show you how to use it.

Changing rear pads on 04 biuck lesaber, can't get but one in.


The rear brake caliper piston doesnt push back, it takes a specail $7 tool from Auto Zone or other part store, the caliper piston screws back into the caliper. pushing it back may damage the caliper, be careful here.

How to assemble the rear right calipers around the pads?


if you are having trouble retracting the caliper, push and turn on face of piston with pliers (rotate Clockwise) this retractes the piston thus allowing the pads to fit on the calipers. The piston does not retract on its own because of the automatic adjusting brakes.
