I have a 2006 Suzuki Forenza. I am replacing brake rotors and pads, front and rear. Are any special tools or procedures required to retract the brake caliper to install the new pads?

To change the brake pads, you will need two cans of brake cleaner and the tools required are a: 3/8" drive ratchet, 3/4" socket, 9/16" socket , 3" 3/8" drive extension, and a medium size clamp. The rotors will pull straight off once you get to them. Have all of your rotors turned (resurfaced) at your local auto repair garage because this can not be done at home unless you have the machine that will resurface them.

How to put rear brakes on


Remove the caliper mounting bolts and remove the caliper. Replace brake pads as necessary. Special tool is required to retract caliper piston to fit over new pads. (see picture below)
Retract piston in caliper using special tool to rotate clockwise and make sure the notch in the piston is aligned properly so the tab on the inner pad will fit in properly.
Reinstall caliper assembly and caliper mounting bolts.

2000 VW "front brakes" amber colored light is always on now..


the front pads have wear sensors built in so you can change the fronts only if you wish(genuine parts only,and you will have to get the system reset after.)
the special tool is required to force the pistons back into the calipers.you could do it yourself but as it requires you to buy the parts,take off the front wheels etc, by the time youve done all that,1 hours labour is all it cost for a dealer to fit them........and you dont get your hands dirty..........

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

2006 Malibu Maxx - rotors were out of round.


In order to retract the pistons on the rear calipers you need to use a special tool that will rotate the piston in a clockwise direction.It may be possible to try to use a strong needle nose plier.Apply force against the U shaped slots on the piston and rotate clockwise until the piston bottoms out.Before you reinstall the caliper make sure that the recessed slots are at 12 and 6 "o"clock..the slots align with one or two bumps on the inside pad.
If you are having problems with your calipers rebuilt one are a good option.If only the caliper slide pins are sticking they can be cleaned and lubricated.Pin lubricant sometimes comes with a set of brake pads.Other than that lube may be purchased separately at an automotive supply store.

Passat 2003 tdi, brake pad change..


Proper size wrenches and a large C-clamp to push piston back into the caliper is only tools for the front, but back disk brakes require special tool to TURN the piston as it is pushed back into caliper to reset emergency brake. This tool can often be borrowed from Auto parts store or purchased from Harbor Freight http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=40732 for about $20. Don't try to service rear disks without the tool, Calipers can be broken if not retracted properly!
