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

Rear brake piston on 2011 Ford Flex SEL. I have done brakes in the past, and never on A Flex. Not for years actually. Seemed ok until I went to compress the piston with a c-clamp. It won't budge. So I came...


you need a tool to turn the piston to get it to go back into the caliper. if you don`t have the proper tool you can use a pair of adjustable pliers to turn the piston back but be careful to not damage the piston rubber boot.

2006 malibu maxx - the rear brake caliper will not depress.


If you are replacing the rear pads and are trying to retract the caliper pistons here is what you need to do.
Use a piston installation tool in order to twist the brake caliper piston into the brake caliper bore.
If you do not have the tool you can retract the piston by using a needle nose plier.
Exert downward force and rotate clockwise until the piston bottoms out.
Before installing be sure the two "U" shaped slots are at 6:00 and 12:00 Oclock.

How do you replace rear brake pads on 2006 kia spectra


Don't do this if your not comfortable working on cars ... someone could get hurt ...or your car could. Make sure front wheel are blocked and car is in either park or first gear.
  1. Don't set the parking break.
  2. Lift corner up to remove tire.
  3. Remove the two shoulder bolts on back of caliper .. .10mm I think.
  4. Pull caliper up and forward. Don't let it hank by the brake line.
  5. Remove pad, making sure to not lose the small clip that holds onto the ears of the pads.
  6. You need to get a special tool to screw in the piston that is on the caliper. This can be obtained for about $15 at most automotive store.
  7. Be careful to not tear the rubber piston boot when screwing piston back in ... go slow.
  8. Wipe caliper off of any dirt. Don't use compressed air. Use a small wire brush to remove any corrosion in the area where the pad ears go, if needed.
  9. Replace new pads into caliper and remount caliper onto rotor.
  10. Screw shoulder bolts back in. Don't force them as the shoulder fits into a hole in the backing plate. You should almost be able to screw them in by hand. tighten good
  11. Get in car and work parking brake about 5 times. This adjusts the pads to the rotors.
  12. Repeat on other side.

CANT GET THE PISTON TO RETRACT ON THE CALIPER


With rear brakes the caliper piston must screwed in. It usually has a parking brake mechanism that has to screw out as the pad wears down. When you install a new fat pad, the piston won't retract with normal pressure of a clamp but must be screwed back in on the parking brake screw. This can be done with a long nose pliers but tools are made just for the purpose. I hope this helps.
