Question about Hyundai Motor 2000 Tiburon
You are talking about caliper piston?It should have notches in the piston,one across from the other.These are used to turn the piston.The parts store makes a universal tool for this that a 3/8ratchet will fit.One side(left,or right wheel)will turn right,and the other left.When you start turning the piston,look at it close to see whitch way the piston is moving.If it is coming out,then stop and go the other way.Be shure to get the piston all the way in,so the caliper with the brake pads will go back on.If the pads have way to much slack in them,turn the piston,so it will come back out a little.You do this so you will have a good height on the brake pedal.I hope this helps,and if it does,please let me know,thanks,and if You need more information,feel free to ask.

Not sure what kind of car you are working on, but if it has disc brakes on it there are two different styles. The first style is one that is just pushed back in with a c clamp. The second style is one that has to be turned back in with a special tool that can be purchased at your local parts house. It is a small square block with different style tips all around it that will fit into you piston. Have a 3/8 ratchet and a short extension find the tips on the tool that fit in the notches on your piston and turn it clockwise as you push in.

SOURCE: REAR BRAKE REPLACEMENT
those calipers in the rear have slots on the piston right. that means you have to turn the pistons in clockwise. sometimes a pair of needle nose pliers put in the slots and turn will work, otherwise there is a rear caliper brake tool to turn those pistons in.

The rear calipers on that model rotate in, it requires a special tool.
If you pushed too hard directly in, there is a chance that you may have damaged the caliper.

does it hav a drum or rotor? if drum then get a hanes manual if rotor grab a big pair of pliers and squeeze. also put the old pads back on and put the caliper back on and take a screwdriver near the top of the cailper put it in between the rotor and cailper and pull towards you firmly and steady.
