Replacing rear brake pads on 2006 Freestar ..piston won't move back with c clamp


I just had this problem myself. I ended up removing the caliper completely and drained it of all of it's fluid. I then held it in my hand and used an 2" round bar to beat the piston back down. once you break it loose it goes fairly easy. then bolt it all back up and bleed the brakes

Opening brake calipers to change rear pads


There is a special tool required for this job. It expands a plate between the piston and caliper but also has a threaded rod through the middle that allows you to turn the piston clockwise as it gets pushed in.

Just taken the old brake pads off the car and the pistons wont move in order to get the new pads on


With the new pads in place, loosen the bleeder valve a few turns while applying pressure to the pads. A small amount of brake fluid will likely spray out as the pads and pistons move, so have a pan or a rag ready. Once the pads are flush with the edges of the caliper, retighten the valve - making sure that the pads don't move.

Back brakes


rear brake are just pads. but you will need a piston pusher. go to your local auto store and get a universal piston pusher. should look like a four sided block with peggs sticking out. make sure the e-brake is off, remove the rear wheels, remove the calipers and replace the pads push the pistons in with the universal pusher and reinstall the caliper.
