Question about 2005 Hyundai Elantra
You can use a large C clamp to compress the caliper piston, but make sure to remove the fill cap where you fill the brake fluid before you do. I generally fold a paper towel to one fourth original size and set that on top of the fill hose to keep from squirting fluid into the engine compartment. Use a brake pad and set it against the piston and compress the metal brake pad in order to deliver even force to the caliper piston.

SOURCE: 1998 Ford Explorer brake problem
these rotors are known for rusting onto the vehicle. when you removed them you probably had to beat them off with a hammer. if this is the case then you may have a small amount of surface corrosion on the hub. this could cause your rotor to not sit evenly and cause a wobble. recommend removing the new rotor and cleaning the surface of the hub

It must be turned clockwise while being pushed in. The local parts store will have a tool just for this purpose.

The caliper piston has to be turned clockwise as it is compressed. If not,it will not retract. This will allow the park brake to reset. If you have only pressed the caliper in with a "C" clamp,you may have damaged the mechanism inside the caliper. If this has happened,you will need to replace them.The OTC #206-026 is the tool for turning the caliper back into the bore. I hope this helps,if you need more information,drop me a line. Thanks,Chuck
