SOURCE: calipers will not go back on
there is a special tool for the rear calipers,it turns and pushes at the same time.If it is on the front,try loosening the bleeder as you push if the caliper goes in and fluid comes out then you will need to replace the rubber brake hose

bleed the brake again. if the pedal goes to the floor with little resistance, then the master cylinder is your problem.
the shim is to depress the noise when you applied the brake. you can skip that, if the brake works without it.
