No do not use a c clamp to press the rotor back in unless you plan on breaking your clamp !!!! On that particular model of (Tiburon) the calipers screw back in.

There is a cylinder on the inside of the calipers that compresses the pads against the rotor. Take a large C clamp and use it to slowly squeeze the cylinder back in flush with the edge of the caliper. New pads should fit now. If you don't have a large C clamp, the you might be able to use a large pair of channel locks to do the same thing.

Take the oldpad and put it back on the caliper piston and place a C-clamp inn the center of the pad to push the piston back in.If there are metal clips that hold the pad in the piston just tap them to the inside with a hammer befor putting pas on piston.Well hope this helps.

Changing rear brake pads on 2008 Ford Taurus and a threaded rod located within the caliber piston prevents compression of piston back into the caliber.


You need a special tool for rear pads. The pistons have to be turned in, there is either slots or holes in the piston for the tool to fit in, then just turn the piston clockwise and push a little at the same time.
Just turn them in far enough for the new pads to slide over the rotor.

How to replace rear brake pads on 2006 dodge sprinter 3500


replacing brake pads is pretty simple but because the results of not doing it correctly is pretty severe (can you say accident) I recomend you get a Haynes manual for your vehicle. Generally they can be purchased for approximately $20 at autozone. The basics for replacing brake pads (as opposed to brake shoes) is to losen the brake caliper so it can be moved up off the brake rotor. Then the old pads pop out. Next the brake caliper piston is pushed back into the caliper and the new pads fit in. Now the caliper is placed back over the brake rotor. Again, get the manual.

How to replace brake pads on 2006 oddesey


Raise and secure on stands after breaking loose the lug nuts and parking brake on for front pads.. Remove wheels and spread old pads back to push cylinders back in their bores on calibers to allow for thickness of new pads. Remove the 2 sliding claiber retaining bolts and rotate caliber out of mount and secure with wire, boungie cord, or rope to take weight of caliber brake hose. Remove old pads, install new, and reassemble in reverse order. Lugs on alloy wheel should be torgued to 95 foot lbs. Block front wheels, release parking brake,and do the back ones the same way. After completing, pump brake pedal slowly several times to seat new pads. If you move the MPV without pumping first, you will have no brakes to stop. If brake fluid level is high in master cylinder, you will need to take some out first to make room for returning fluid from caliber pistons being returned to their bores prior to any brake work. Rotors should be replaced or turned if scored or warped to have better clapping of pads to rotor surface.

I am replacing the front brake pads an i cannot get the caliper with the new pads back on? i dont know how to get it back on right


You need to push the caliper pistons back in before pads will fit over rotor. You can use a big C clamp and a block to push piston back in.
You can go to autozone.com and register for free, then you will have a full free online repair manual that I recommend to everyone
