They make a certain tool for depressing break pistons but if you dont have it try and use a c clamp and tighten it til piston is all the way down just becareful to not crack the piston(ive done that before no serious damage)

How to remove the rear brake drum on a chev 3500 4x4


Unless this truck was designed different from all the rest? It should be has simple as pulling off the tire and tapping around the back edge of the drum and it should pop off. Be sure emergency break is off, because that will spread the shoes making the drum wedged on. You did say drum, correct? Because if you have rear disc breaks? Pull tire and remove housing (two bolts) holding the break pads. You may have to stick a pry bar between the rotor & caliper to depress the caliper piston/s. A 350 truck probably has 2-pistons on the caliper. Also. get a couple finger visegrips to depress the pistons all the way down before trying to reinstall the break-pads. This way you don't have to bleed the breaks when you are done. just remember to pump them up a few times before you take off to drive. they will come right back up and should work perfectly.

Brakes on 2003 nissan altima are wearing on one side only. has been repaired repeatedly. After a few thousand miles only one side works other side consquently wears out out fast &then there is a...


Sounds like the caliper on the side that isn't wearing is not working properly. You need to test it to make sure that it is pushing out properly when the brakes are pressed. I can't imagine that it is working correctly. It sounds like the piston isn't moving out and you need to look at replacing that caliper so that your brakes wear evenly and also to make sure you have your full stopping power. Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!

The hard part is pressing the caliper piston abck into the caliper so you can get the new, thicker pads over the rotor. A large C Clamp works best.

Changing front breaks on a 2006 titan...cant seem to get the caliper over the new break pads


hi , your caliper pistons are not retracted all the way in , use 1 of the old pads against the piston(s) use a big channel locks or big c clamp , open the bleeder screw , compress the piston(s) back in all the way , lock the bleeder screw , when calipers are reinstalled , don't forget to pump the pads out with the brake pedal before your throw it in gear , because the first couple of brake pedal strokes will reset the pads to the rotors . then recheck the brake fluid level .
