How do you colaspe the rear caliper on a 2004 cadillac sls

You can buy a tool made to do this specific job - I just use a C clamp and sometimes use the old brake ped as a bridge over the face of the caliper so that I can use the stationary part of the clamp on it. rather than screw the threaded part down inside the caliper.

I changed front brakes on a 2004 sebring now the pedal is soft

If you opened a brake line,or bleed screw,then you will have to bleed the brakes.If not,check the calipers to see if one is not letting go of the brake rotor,if so,there is a brake hose going to the brake caliper ,that is colasped inside,and it needs to be replaced.

I cant seem to get the rear brake caliper to compress so it will fit over the new pads

There are two stlyes of calipers for the rears. One is ratcheting so the piston has to be turned back to colaspe. The other type compresses with a C clamp. If a large retaining spring is on the inner part of the caliper you have the ratcheting type. A brake cable will attach to the spring as well. If not it will compress instead

Just replaced brake pads on my 99 chevy p.u. seem to be fine when they are cold but feel like they are grabbing when they heat up. What could be the problem?

Hope you are talking about the front brakes,First check to see if the brakes are releasing the brake rotor.If they are not,it is posible the slide on the caliper need cleaning and lubed.Also could be the brake hoses colasping,and not allowing the piston in the brake calipers to release.Did you have the rotors turned?It could have something to do with it.Also what it probley is,that when you pushed the piston back in the caliper,you didn`t remove the master cylinder top off.Bleed the right front caliper,then the left front caliper,and then the master cylinder.This should clear it up.
