Question about 2007 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5 Sedan
Have replaced pads. How do I retract/install/compress the claiper?
If you look at the piston on the Caliper it has 2 grooves on the face where the Brake pad mates to it. There is a special tool to push and turn the piston back into the caliper bore. that type caliper is also used to apply the parking brake. cable attached to rear of caliper and to an arm with a heavy spring. If you go to Harbor freight they have an inexpensive set for this.

You may have to "screw" them in, compress as your a turning them in.
