New brake rear discs and pads on a ford mondeo 03 but can not get the caliper pisten to go back enough to fit pads


Loosen the brake fluid reservoir cap to allow pressure to escape. Use a large C clamp connecting it to the front of the piston and back of the housing. Turn the screw on the clamp to compress the brake piston then release the clamp. The piston will remain compressed allowing you the fit the housing over the new brake pads.

It's pretty simple. The front line from the mastercylinder should go into a tee, then from the tee to each front wheel. The rear the same way. No proportioning valve is needed with 4-wheel discs.

since the new pads are alot thicker than the old ones,the brake needs to be set properly.

Rear Brakes not loosening up on Mustang


Did you turn the pistons in to allow room for new pads. The calipers are also for your parking brake and need to be turns in when replacing pads.
