On my bonnevile, a c clamp wouldn't work. Online, it identified the calipers need to be turned back in. On the front side, there should be grooves in the center of the caliper that you can turn to retract. to allow enough space for it to go back on.

You have to rent a special tool from an auto parts store. The tool will turn the calipers in as well as push at the same time, Once your finished return the tool to the store and the will give your deposit back.

You need a specialized tool that retracts the calipers, try a 10" C-clamp. It's shaped like a "C" and has a bolt that moves through it. Place the top of the "C" behind the caliper and the base of the bolt at the edge of the caliper. Start tightening, this will remove the hydraulic oil in the caliper and collapse the caliper. Install pads and reassemble.

Breaks on a 2006 Grand Prix


Rear disc brakes have to also apply the parking brakes.
To do that, they must not retract too far.
That is accomplished with a one way ratched down the center of the piston, on the back side.
So most rear pistons have to be rotated CW in order to retract down this spiral ratchet.
Not sure exactly how Pontiac works, but there is probably a large slot in the piston to allow for this.

They have kits you can buy to remove the door panel but when you do it, be careful and go slow, make sure not to break off the clips on the door panel otherwise it wont fit right when you want to put it back in. im not so sure about the mirror though.
