Question about 1995 Cadillac DeVille
For the rear you need to turn the piston as you crank with the C
clamp. It's a lot easier with the right tool. Any good parts store has
the tool. The tool to use is a universal brake caliper tool, I picked
mine up from Pep boys for $10 bucks. The tool fits on a socket wrench
and you turn it clockwise to depress the piston into position.
If everything is apart and you don't have an extra car, just used a pair of sturdy needle nose pliers to get int the groves and twist, no pressure needed.
Tork it down just enough to get the caliper back on. Once it is all bolted back up you will pull many many times on your e-brake handle to tighten the piston back up against the new pad.
Good luck, but try to use the tool.
