Question about 2003 Jaguar X-Type
You can do what JorgensenTec said But you can open the bleeder screw and attach a one man bleeder can( sold in autozone) and then compress the caliper with on old brake pad and a C clamp ( also found in autozone). using the old brake pad will prevent the second piston ( if equipped) from exctruding to far out and tearing the rubber seal holding them in place, preventing you from buying a new caliper. Also the one man bleeder will allow you from keeping the ABS safe from preventing the fluid to rush up with the bleeder screw closed, and no air is inserted in to the ABS assemebly.

If the question is how to compress the brake caliper, this is done using a larger C-clamp. Make sure to watch both sides as compressing one side may cause the brake fluid to push the other side out further. This causes a big mess and is easier to avoid than to remedy.

It must be turned clockwise while being pushed in. The local parts store will have a tool just for this purpose.

you need a special tool avalable at most parts stores. its a disc brake piston turning tool. you have to rotate piston clockwise while pushing in on piston. you can fabricate something that enguages the slots and push and turn till all the way in.make sure to note position of slots and put them in same place as was before or the pin on the pads wont enguage the slot

Only way is to use diagnistic equipment.Go to HAND BRAKE . There is option to release the pistons.When you change the brake pads you have to use option - engage .
