Struggling to depress pistons on rear brakes. Hoave used G-clamp, Made a special tool with nut and bolt. Still struggling.


The pistons in the caliper should retract without much effort. A "C" clamp is usually all you need to do it. I suspect you have a seized caliper or possibly a kinked or crushed brake line (preventing the brake fluid from returning to the master cylinder when the piston is depressed) feeding that caliper - but isn't very likely.

How can I tell if my emergency brake is damaged on my rear caliper on a 2005 Chevy Malibu maxx


Remove the wheel and have someone depress the e-brake while observing cable operation. The cable should pull the brake arm on the caliper and release the arm when the e-brake pedal is released.

Parking brake 2005 elantra does not work


Hi Richard, I think you may find that the park brake works on a separate system with a set of small brake liners inside a drum on the rear wheels. If I'm wrong and it uses the disc pads, try replacing the pads and adjusting the travel, that should sort out the problem. Regards John

Front brake calipers are sticking putting strain on my clutch and wearing it out , after i had my rear pads replaced


Make sure your rubber brake lines going into your calipers are not collapsed. If they are fine you might just have a stuck caliper.

Pull the tire off and when you check your rubber lines going into the caliper take alook and see if the caliper engages and releases the rotor properly with someone applying the brakes and releasing them.

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 .

Can I depress rear caliper piston with G clamp


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.

How to change rear brake pads


Raise the rear of the vehicle and make sure it is securely supported. Remove the rear wheel Remove the brake hose (A) from the suspension arm by removing the brake hose clip (B).Thoroughly clean the outside of the caliper to prevent dust and dirt from entering inside.Support the caliper with a piece of wire so that it does not hang from the brake se.f2d9a24.jpg
Remove the two guide rods (C) and caliper (D) from the bracket. Remove the pad shim (A) and brake pads (B).77fcb0a.jpg

Remove the pad retainers.2884b28.jpg
Clean the caliper thoroughly; remove any rust, and check for grooves and cracks. Check the brake disc for damage and cracks. Install the pad retainers. Check the foreign material at the pad shim (A) and the back of the pads (B). Contaminated brake discs or pads reduce stopping ability. Keep grease off the discs and pads.3fdca95.jpg
Install the brake pads (B) and pad shim (A) on the caliper bracket. Install the inner pad with its wear indicator (C) facing down ward. If you are reusing the pads, always reinstall the brake pads in their original positions to prevent a momentary loss of braking efficiency. Rotate the caliper piston (A) clockwise into the cylinder, the align the cutout (B) in the piston with the tab (C) on the inner pad by turning the piston back. Lubricate the boot with rubber grease to avoid twisting the piston boot. If the piston boot is twisted, back it out so it is positioned properly.1d2811d.jpg
Install the brake caliper (D). Install and torque the guide rods (E) to proper specification. Install the brake hose (F) onto the suspension arm with the brake hose clip (G). After installation, check for leaks at hose and line joints and connections, and retighten if necessary. Depress the brake pedal several times to make sure the brakes work, then test-drive. Engagement of the brake may require a greater pedal stroke immediately after the brake pads have been replaced as a set. Several applications of the brake pedal will restore the normal pedal stroke.
