You have to rotate the piston. Here is the procedure from
See Figure 1

  1. If equipped with an air bag, disconnect the negative battery cable and properly disable the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS), as detailed in Chassis Electrical .
  2. Loosen the lug nuts, then Raise and safely support the vehicle on jackstands.
  3. Remove the rear wheel.
  4. Remove the 2 caliper mounting bolts and remove the caliper from the bracket.
  5. Remove the pads, shims and pad retainers.

To install:
  1. Clean the caliper thoroughly removing any dirt or dust. Check the brake rotor for grooves or cracks; machine or replace, as necessary.
  2. Install the pad retainers. Apply a disc brake pad lubricant to both surfaces of the shims and the back of the disc brake pads. Do not get any lubricant on the braking surface of the pad.
  3. Install the pads and shims.
  4. Use a suitable tool to rotate the caliper piston clockwise into the caliper bore, enough to fit over the brake pads. Lubricate the piston boot with silicone grease to avoid twisting the piston boot.

  2. Install the wheel. Lower the vehicle.
  3. Check the fluid in the master cylinder and add as required. Depress the brake pedal several times to seat the pads.
  4. If equipped, enable the SRS system and connect the negative battery cable.

Fuel. temp gauges stoped working

I don't think they're related unless your brake master cylinder has a fluid level sensor in it. It's possible the wires have shorted together and blew the gauges fuse.

Replace brake pads

Remove wheels. Remove calpers and extract worn pads. Open bleed screw on calper and using suitable tool ( G clamp ect) push the piston all the way back in. Close of bleeder screw. Check that the disc (rotor) is in good condition and fit pads in reverse to the way you removed them taking care that all antireattlle devices are correctly fitted., REfitting is reverse to dissasembly. Rear pads are more difficult to do because of the hand brake mechanism

Did you reconnect all the Vacuum lines to the Booster? You might ned to re-bleed the brakes again, it seems like you still have alot of air in your system.

I have a 93 jeep the drivers wheel keeps locking up i me what do i do

This really can be one of two problems that I can think of off the top of my head. Either your wheel bearing is seized up, or the caliper on that wheel is seizing up clamping down on the rotor locking up the tire. I would think your caliper is frozen. You will need to remove the tire and inspect it. Take the caliper off of the truck and have someone step on the brake pedal. The caliper should clamp shut. Now take a very big pair of channel locks and rap a rag around the jaws and use it to compress the pistons in the caliper. If you feel a lot of resitance then you should repalce the caliper and the brake line on that side of the car. This should fix your problem.

I am after changing the brake pads on the front of my audi a4 one of the calpers was sticking the check engine light abs and traction control light came on and mileage clock has stopped working i've since...

I don't think the lights on the dash board is anything to do with your sticking brake caliper ,it sounds to me like your instrument cluster is faulty
Hope this helps Nick

92 Camry New rotor, brakes Rotor still getting torn up by brakes.

You need to check for any looseness in the wheel that this is occuring, since you haven't mentioned which one. Did you tighten the axle nut enough? Is the caliper brake not twisted so as to not tighten when turning. The calper bracket may be out of line.
