 The piston caliper is threaded and has to be retracted by turning the piston caliper with a special tool that can be purchased at most auto parts stores for around 10-15 dollars. Make sure the cap is off the master cylinder reservoir and make sure the brake liquid is in good order. Not difficult.

How does the rear caliber go back into postion twist it or push straight back with c-clamp

If the enrage cable is attached to the caliper you will need to twist and push. If there is no ebrake cable attached just push.

always post a Year, Make, Model, and Engine Size with your automotive questions. This helps get you the most accurate info possible for the vehicle in question.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

I have a 2008 Mercury Sable that is having break problems. I went to replace the break pads on the rear and the driver side went great. When i got to the passanger side i noticed that i could barely spin...

Take the rotor off and check the ebrake. If the rotor is hard to get off then the ebrake is holding it on and is most likely your problem. It won't be your master cylinder or proportioning valve because it is only affecting one side. Any questions feel free to email me at

Trying to change the rear brakes on a 2008 caravan but can not get the e brake cable off so I can remove the caliper

The brake cable does not need to be removed to take off the caliper. The only things that need to be taken out are the two bolts that hold the caliper to its mounting bracket.

Hope this helps!

How do you know if rear brake caliper is adjusted out correctly

Calipers are self adjusting.Applying the brakes and the ebrake will push the piston to where it needs to be.

Cant depress brake caliper to replace pads

disc brakes on the rear of a vehicle have a screw out mechanism that attaches to the ebrake . this means that you must turn the caliper piston to recess into the cylinder.
open the bleed screw to make it move eazier.

Rear brakes seemm to be sticking on rear of my 2004 murano, 74K highway miles pads changed by dealer at 55k on rear. afterdirving just 5 to 10 miles rearfotors are HOT like calipers stuck or ebrake stuck....

Take your rear calipers off and lubricate the pistons with bearing grease,move them up and down with your fingers till they move more freely,then remove the dirt from the a.b.s sensor if any with w.d 40. Then check to see if your emergency brake is adjusted to free up wheel movement,but not to loose.
