Question about Cars & Trucks
2006 Kia Spectra 5. 4 wheel disc brakes on the rear brakes how to I retract the piston in the caliper so I can replace my disc pads and reinstall the caliper. The piston does not compress like the front brakes. The rear brake piston/caliper is a whole different animal. Thanks Gary

You need a special tool avalable at most parts stores. its a disc brake piston turning tool. you have to rotate piston clockwise while pushing in on piston. you can fabricate something that enguages the slots and push and turn till all the way in.make sure to note position of slots and put them in same place as was before or the pin on the pads wont enguage the slot
