The easiest way is to:
open the bleeder nut
use a C-Clamp to depress the caliper so you can slide in your brake pads. ;-)

I am installing rear brakes on 1997 lincon mark 8 and cant depress brake cylinders


If it is a disc brake with the park brake connected to the brake caliper the piston in the caliper will need to be rotated back into the caliper bore. there are special; tools for this but sometimes a multi position wrench can be used. If when rotating the piston starts to move out of the caliper stop straight away and reverse rotation before the piston comes out causing loss of fluid and air entering .

How to reset brake caliper


The pistons in all calipers I have seen can be forced back into their seat to allow new brake pads to clear. If constructed as most, a C-clamp can be used to press the cylinder back in.

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.

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

Rear Disc Brake Piston


Unfortunately, the lip seal which your caliper piston rides on is leaking. The only remedy for this problem is to replace the caliper.
