The brake caliper pistons have to be turned back in the caliper in order to install the new pads. I would recommend going to the parts store and maybe renting the tool to do it.

My 2000 ford mustang gt v8 make a sweeky noise in the rear tires after even after changing rear brakes and shocks.

The squeaky noise can be several things, but usually it's how your pad contacts the rotor provided it's rear disc. Check the caliper slides, if it's not sliding back and forth, you'll wear the inboard side pad and it will squeak.

Cant get caliper pins out on 1995 ford mustang to replace brake pads seems stuck

I would get a small propane or mapp gas torch and heat the area of the bracket where the pin is. A bench vise or a pair of vice grips will aid in twisting the pin out. You might have to replace the pin and the rubber boots....Good Luck

check the rear of your trunk driver side like if your going to change rear brake light do you have a gas override switch wich starts the gas pump its a restart button you have to remove the panel as if your going to take off tail light on driver side rear its an emergency shut off.

How to replace rear brake pads

Jack up car, remove wheel. There are two bolts that hold the caliper on. Remove these. Caliper comes off, take old pads out. There is a special tool to compress the piston back into the caliper (do not use a C Clamp on the rears.) Put new pads back on, re-install the caliper, and put the wheel back on. Pump the brake pedal until it is firm. Done.

97 mustang gt running threw rear brake pads

how many miles are u getting on a set of brake pads before they wear out? Have u flushed out the lines? Contaminated brake fluid can ruin the calipers, causing internal corrosion which in turn causes the caliper to drag and burn out the pads prematurely. The strange thing w/ this theory, is the fact that it's just one wheel. I would try bleeding all the lines though, to make sure u have bled all old fluid, and replaced it w/ new. Has the mustang ever been in an accident? Just wondering if caliper mounting bracket is tweeked, or some other component that the brake system is mounted to. Let me know if this is any help, and if not, if u have any more clues that might help figure this out. Good Luck
