Retracting the piston on my 2004 jaguar x-type

I was trying to replace the rear brake pads on my 2004 jaguar x-type. For some reason I can't get the pistons to retract, and no, the parking brake was not set. Is there anything I may be missing?

How to retract brake caliper piston?


Hi, if this is a front caliper that is still on the rotor, I pry between the rotor and rear brake pad to push the piston in. I usually have to pull on the caliper a bit to get it retracted enough to get a screwdriver in between. If the caliper is already off the rotor, I leave the old inside pad on the piston and put a large c-clamp over the caliper to push on the pad and retract the piston. If this is a rear disk caliper or if you have any questions, please reply.

Just taken the old brake pads off the car and the pistons wont move in order to get the new pads on


With the new pads in place, loosen the bleeder valve a few turns while applying pressure to the pads. A small amount of brake fluid will likely spray out as the pads and pistons move, so have a pan or a rag ready. Once the pads are flush with the edges of the caliper, retighten the valve - making sure that the pads don't move.

I can't retract the rear calper on my 2002 Jaguar X-type. I am changing the pads & rotor. vem


What are you using? A c-clamp or you hands? A c-clamp ussually works but can sometimes cause the piston to become ****-eyed in the caliper. Best bet is to use the proper tool or a c clamp. Both work good. If it won't retract with those, the piston is siezed. Time for a new caliper.
