Most calipers that have the e-brake built into the caliper need to have the piston turned into the caliper and that takes a special tool.

Rear caliper piston turns using the dice but it wont depress


You must push hard while turning back a screw type caliper. It may help if you crack your bleeder screw and force the brake fluid out of the caliper. Ibut you shoud bleed your brakes after

How do i depress rear pistons on 95 grand prix


On the 1995 grand prix the rear calipers are turned and pushed in at the same time to get caliper piston in. be careful not to use a c- clamp to try and push them in as damage will occur to caliper, theres a tool used to push pistons in, theres one thats a wheel with pins that sit on the face of the piston and you turn and push in at the same time, lets see if i can get a picture for you, also you can rent this tool at many auto part stores.heres a few tools and a pictures, there is also a cube shaped tool thats cheap and does the job, good day, hope this helps.2_15_2012_6_54_24_pm.gif2_15_2012_6_54_38_pm.jpg2_15_2012_6_55_01_pm.jpg

I have a 96 isuzu rodeo,3.2 and the brakes will lock up on their own, gradually then it takes about 15 minutes for them to release, any thoughts?


this could be caused by a few things, first you need to jack the truck up you will need all 4 wheels off the ground, put the transmission in neutral and have some one get in the truck and wile turning each wheel have the person in the truck push the brake pedal the wheel should stop instantly then have the person release the brake the brake should release instantly,( do this to each wheel ) if all brakes remain locked ( wont release instantly ) then replace the master cylinder if the both rear brakes wont release instantly replace the brake hose from the frame to the rear differential, if the both front brakes wont release replace master cylinder, if only one front brake wont release open the bleeder on that brake caliper if the wheel releases replace the caliper hose if the brake still wont release with the bleeder open replace the caliper, you should replace the caliper and brake hoses as a pair.

Cant get rear caliper piston to collapse 06


The rear calipers on that model rotate in, it requires a special tool.

If you pushed too hard directly in, there is a chance that you may have damaged the caliper.

Changing rear pads on 04 biuck lesaber, can't get but one in.


The rear brake caliper piston doesnt push back, it takes a specail $7 tool from Auto Zone or other part store, the caliper piston screws back into the caliper. pushing it back may damage the caliper, be careful here.

Rear brake cylinders are stuck, can not push them in


I have a 2004 SAAB 93 and just finished replacing the brake pads and rotors yesterday. On the piston itself you should have two little notches. You can either or a GM rotor reset tool that will push into the two little notches and push against the piston while rotating it clock wise. Or the way that I did it was to take a C clamp and put the caliper back on the car. Clamp it on the back of the caliper to the front of the caliper so it will remain stationary. Then take a pair of needle nose pliers and rotate the two notches clockwise while pushing into the caliper. It will take some strength but you should be able to push them in. Be sure that you spray the boot around the piston when some WD 40 so it does not crack and or break during the process. If you have any additional questions about this feel free to email me.
