You can screw the rear caliper pistons back in, by using a needle nose pliers and turning the cross or x notch in a clockwise direction. both caliper pistons will turn the same way. The reason they "screw" out, is for positive locking pressure when the parking brake is engaged.

There is a tool that that screws and pushes the piston back at the same time. Pretty much impossible to do without it. Available at good parts stores.

Replacing rear brake pads on 2006 Freestar ..piston won't move back with c clamp


I just had this problem myself. I ended up removing the caliper completely and drained it of all of it's fluid. I then held it in my hand and used an 2" round bar to beat the piston back down. once you break it loose it goes fairly easy. then bolt it all back up and bleed the brakes

How to put rear brakes on


Remove the caliper mounting bolts and remove the caliper. Replace brake pads as necessary. Special tool is required to retract caliper piston to fit over new pads. (see picture below)
Retract piston in caliper using special tool to rotate clockwise and make sure the notch in the piston is aligned properly so the tab on the inner pad will fit in properly.
Reinstall caliper assembly and caliper mounting bolts.

How do I get the rear brake pad assembly back on the rotar? The new pads make the space between them too narrow for the assembly to fit over the rotar


You have to compress the caliper. If your design uses the brake pads as parking break, you need to rotate the piston while compressing it. there are tools that assist with this, but I use a C clamp and the old brake pad.

How do i get the rear brake pistons to go back to install new brake pads?


you will want to use a C-clamp for this. Take the c-clamp and an old brake pad, put the pad against the piston and the non-mobile end of the c-clamp on the back of the caliper. Turn the moving portion of the C-clamp in until it pushes the pad into the piston, and pushes the piston completely into the caliper. I hope this helps.

I have a 2006 ford focus and need to learn how to change the brakes cause they are starting to go bad, can someone help me?


Front or rear brakes? The fronts are normal disc brakes, but the rears are drum. Basically, this means the fronts are super simple to swap out pads, but the rears... not so much.

For the fronts:
1) Secure the car. Park, Parking brake, chocks behind the rear wheels. (Unless you use a lift)
2) Break loose the lug nuts. (Do NOT remove them yet. ONLY break the torque on them.)
3) Jack the front of the car up. Alternatively, use a lift.
4) Remove wheels.
NOTE: Do NOT EVER disconnect the hose going to the calipers. Doing this, even for a moment, will require a full bleed of the break system. Failure to correctly bleed the air from the system will result in having either uneven breaking, NO breaks, or somewhere in between.
5) On the inboard side of the caliper there should be two bolts. (On some models the caliper itself has the bolts and you can remove one and service it without having to remove the assembly.) If needed, remove the assembly from the hub by removing the two bolts. Try not to kink/damage/be too rough on the brake hose. Securing it with a ziptie, string, or wire is a good idea.
6) You should now be able to simply remove the old pads from the calipers.
7) Put the new pads into the calipers and reassemble. It's a good idea to put some medium strength lock-tite on the bolts to help prevent them from backing out. Make sure these two bolts are torqued down securely as if they back off the caliper could come off while driving.
8) After installing new pads there may not be enough clearance to accommodate the rotor. You will need to very carefully retract the pistons back inside the caliper to get this clearance back. It will NOT be easy/quick, but be careful so as not to damage the piston.
9) Best practices dictate you should at a minimum have the rotors "turned" or simply replaced EVERY time you replace the brake pads. Doing this will help ensure maximum stopping power and longevity of both rotor & pad.
10) Once everything is back together and the car is on the ground follow the pad manufacturers "bedding" instructions.

If you are wanting to service the rears... that's another (much more complex and involved) matter. :(

Can i change breake pads without bleeding brakes as i have read on net that I can compress caliper pistons without opening resevoir and or bleeding lines


Brake pad replacement does not involve brake fluid loss or air entrainment in the brake lines. It is a good idea to loosen the lid on the master cylinder reservoir while you compress each piston. It may make it a bit easier to do. If you do put a rag around the reservoir in the rare event there is slight spillage. Use a small block of wood or an old brake pad as a protective caul to cover the piston end in the caliper, Use a C-clamp or similar tool to gently compress the piston back into the caliper head. When initially positioning the C-clamp, pay close attention to where it will grip on the back of the caliper so you do not inadvertently damage other parts. Once you are all done with the pads check the reservoir and top off with a little fresh brake fluid if necessary. Be sure to securely fasten the lid to the brake fluid reservoir.

How to replace break pads for a honda accord


unbolt the bottom caliper bolt that holds the caliper to the bracket. Then pivot the caliper upward. You should now be able to take the old pads out of the bracket and slide the new ones in their place. Push the caliper piston back in with a c-clamp or big set of channel locks in order to be able to slide it back over the pads and bolt it up.
