The piston screws back. you can buy a tool at an auto parts place for a few dollars. it's a small cube shaped tool with various spaced nubs on each side for multiple vehicle use

How do you compress the piston in the rear caliper on a 2002 VW passat W8 moel.


Hi On a VW PASSAT.
DON'T Hammered...
Just you need to turn with the Turn style tool. to push down the brake piston.
If is hard. Open a LITTE the BLEADER valve to to DROP a few of the brake fluid. Bucause if you force to much. The Brake master cylinder and ABS Module seals can be damaged.
Do a Little by Little. with the bleader valve open. is the right prosses to do that.
But don't forget That maybe your car Require DOT4. Don't put DOT3. is not the same.
I include a picture of your calliper. and the tool.

Replace brake pads on 2007 vw polo


Park the polo on level ground, turn the engine off and apply the parking brake. Pull the hood release handle and move to the front of the car.

Lift the hood and remove the master cylinder. Remove one-half of the brake fluid inside the reservoir with a syringe.

Loosen the lug nuts on the rear wheels with a tire iron. Place the jack beneath the frame at the back of the Volkswagen and lift the back tires off the ground. Rest the rear axles of the Volkswagen on two jack stands. Remove the lug nuts and take the rear wheels off.

Reach behind the brake caliper to locate the caliper mounting pins. Remove the pins with a 12 mm socket and ratchet. Lift the caliper from the brake rotor and suspend it above the wheel assembly with a bungee cord or wire coat hanger.

Remove the rear brake pads from the slots in the caliper bridge. Inspect the caliper bridge and rotor for damage and significant wear. Replace the rotor if it is warped or badly scored. Scoring of the rotors can lead to break failure and will prematurely wear the new brake pads. Place new brake pads into the slots of the caliper bridge.

Attach the piston depression tool to the caliper. The tool will fit over the back side of the caliper and against the piston inside. Twist the tool's handle to force the piston into the side of the rear caliper. Remove the tool once the caliper piston is totally depressed within the caliper.

Replace the caliper onto the caliper bridge and screw in the caliber mounting pens by hand. Replace the rear wheel onto the wheel bolt and screw on the lug nuts.

Repeat the process for the other side of the rear of the polo. Lift the rear end of the vehicle with the jack and remove the jack stands. Lower the rear tires to the ground and tighten the lug nuts with a lug wrench.

Return to the engine compartment. Remove the master cylinder cap and check the level of brake fluid. Place a funnel into the container and fill the reservoir with brake fluid as needed.

Changing front and back brakes on vw golf tdi 54 plate


Replacing brake pads or rotors does not need to be difficult if you have the right tools. Volkswagen and Audi rear calipers require that the piston be rotated while being pushed back into the caliper.

I need to replace the rear brake pads on my Polo 1.9 TDi


this is a turn in caliper, meaning that as you try to compress the piston, you also need to rotate it clockwise. you can buy tool for this at nearly any parts store, and is fairly inexpensive.

2006 mercury mailn rear breakpad replacment.I can't compress the breakcillender piston so that the calaper will acept the new pads


Greetings Milan Owner:
You need a C clamp you can pick up any auto parts store or hardware store and must position it to the front center of the piston with piece of wood accross the front piston and rear center of the caliper and turn the screw by its handle until the rubber part of the piston receeds even with caliper. Once even with the caliper you can put the pads on and slide the caliper on to the rotor. You can also carefully with the right wrench or socket open up the valve on the caliper and let some brake fluid out (very little). This will make it easier for the piston to receed into the caliper with a little help from you using a piece of wood to push it in. Using the second option you will definitely have to bleed your brakes to get a hard brake pedal in the car. Do not forget to add more fluid back to the master cylinder. Good Luck[

Rear brakes (2006 VW jetta) Caliper/ Piston- I am replacing my brack pads and resurfacing my rotors. First we could not find the Triple square (Napa auto parts) but now we are unable to get the piston to...


I had the exact problem today on my in-laws 06 jetta. Come to find out - this model has an electrical parking brake in the rear. The piston will not go in manually like other disc brakes. You must disconnect the electrical wire in the back and run a jumper to the connection from a power source like the battery and the piston will go in.

How to change rear brakes on a 2006 uplander how to push caliper back in?


Some of these calipers do not have the ability to be pushed back in with a c-clamp or even a GM caliper tool....there is however, a small diamond shaped piece of metal on the caliper (Caliper reset tool) that allows you to wind the piston back in,,,,I just went through the same thing
