Honda does these all differnt, some go right in some need to SCREW back in as they are compressed or be spun in between clamping down force. if it is to hard to push in and doesnt "FEEL RIGHT" You need a new caliper.

SOURCE: Rear brakes

parking brake cable is seized or improperly installed.... check that.
I'm uncertain what you mean about the calipers.... but having to push the cyclinder back in to change the pads is normal..... do one at a time. after you have installed the pads, pump the brake then do the other ..... check your brake fluid level when you are done as well.

SOURCE: Rear brakes (2006 VW jetta) Caliper/

I had the exact problem today on my in-laws 06 jetta. Come to find out - this model has an electrical parking brake in the rear. The piston will not go in manually like other disc brakes. You must disconnect the electrical wire in the back and run a jumper to the connection from a power source like the battery and the piston will go in.

SOURCE: 2006 Mustang rear break caliper piston will not compress

Hi Alberts73,
The caliper piston has to be turned clockwise as it is compressed. If not,it will not retract. This will allow the park brake to reset. If you have only pressed the caliper in with a "C" clamp,you may have damaged the mechanism inside the caliper. If this has happened,you will need to replace them.The OTC #206-026 is the tool for turning the caliper back into the bore. I hope this helps,if you need more information,drop me a line. Thanks,Chuck

How do you compress the break caliper on a 2004 Kia sorento


IS THIS A REAR OR FRONT CALIPER?
1. FRONT CALIPER: INSERT A LARGE C CLAMP WITH THE SCREW END INTO OPEN BORE OF CALIPER PISTON, THE STATIONARY END SHOULD BE SNUG AGAINST THE CALIPER END HOUSING: THAT THE PISTON MOVES IN AND OUT OF
COMPRESS C-CLAMP UNTIL CALIPER PISTON SEATS FULLY AGAINST THE CALIPER SEAL. INSTALL NEW PADS
2. REAR CALIPER: RENT AT AUTOZONE A REAR DISC CALIPER COMPRESSION TOOL. THESE CALIPER PISTONS WIND IN CLOCKWISE, INSTEAD OF JUST SLIDING BACK INTO A SMOOTH BORE. THEY HAVE GROOVES THAT FOLLOW A MATCHING SET IN THE CALIPER HOUSING.

I removed the rotor and brake pads. but when going to change the pads I can not get the piston to go back far enough to put the new ones in. How do you get the piston to push back in order to put the brake...


You will have to use a c-clamp or brake piston compressing tool to get that piston back in, while you have the brake master cylinder fluid reservoir cap off.

Hi, Do I need a special tool to depress the caliper piston or can I use a G clamp? I did this on the front brakes but the rear piston seems a lot tighter.


You can use a "C" clamp...but be sure to use the old pad that goes on the piston side of the caliper...place the old pad back on the piston and then use the "C" clamp to depress the piston back into the caliper..this will prevent damage to the piston...also, to aid in this process, you can remove the brake fluid resevoir cap and put a towel around it so it doesn't leak all over the floor

How do i get the rear brake pistons to go back to install new brake pads?


you will want to use a C-clamp for this. Take the c-clamp and an old brake pad, put the pad against the piston and the non-mobile end of the c-clamp on the back of the caliper. Turn the moving portion of the C-clamp in until it pushes the pad into the piston, and pushes the piston completely into the caliper. I hope this helps.

Compressing the rear disc brake caliper on 2008 grand caravan


The rear calipers on these models require a special tool that compresses and turns the piston in at the same time -- most parts stores carry this tool.

It is called a caliper piston press -- and it installs where the pads would go and acts like a c-clamp,when turning handle it will turn the caliper piston backinto the caliper as it compresses it.
Anytime the brake rotor or brake pads are being replaced, the rear caliper piston must be seated (bottomed) to compensate for the new brake rotor or lining. Because the Parking Brake self-adjuster mechanism is attached to the piston, a special seating method is required. The only acceptable method is by rotating the piston back into the bore using Retractor,MILLER Special Tool 8807, . Any other seating method will damage the self-adjuster mechanism.
Good luck and hope this helps.

How to replace rear brake pads


First Remove tire then remove caliper, most calipers are held on using two bolts. Once caliper is removed the pads generally need to be pried out using a flat head screwdriver. Be careful not to damage the seal around the piston. Once pads are removed you will need to force the pistons back into the caliper. Yo ucan do this by using a C clamp and a pc of steel flatstock. Put the flatstock over the piston and clamp to the flat stock and rear of the caliper. Turn the clamp slowly until piston is fully disengaged. You can now put the new pads in and slide the caliper assembly over the rotor. Bolt the caliper to the axle housing and install tire. This is general information only not directly related to mercedes however most vehicles are fairly similar. First take the tire off and inspect wha tyou need to do and get a good idea if what I have told you relates to your mercedes. Good luck

How do you press the brake caliper piston back on 2008


First, take a look at the piston, if it's flat or cup shaped, put an old pad at the piston and use channel locks to squeeze it back in, opening the tool wide to get it to catch the back of the caliper.
If....the piston has what looks like an "X" or cut outs, this is for a tool that spins the piston in with a special tool. (Subaru's and some other cars use this)
After you are all done and pump up the brakes, re-check the brake fluid level.

How do I retract the caliper piston?


Note on rear-caliper piston tool:
Instead of paying $50 for the VW or similar custom tool, you can use a generic $5 import "cube" tool available at most national-chain part stores.
# One side of the cube has 4 prongs. Grind or file off 2 diagonally opposite aka kitty-corner prongs to allow the cube to fit the vw rear brake piston.
# Use with a 3/8" ratchet. It can be easier to fasten the rear caliper back onto the carrier without the rotor in place while using this tool. That way you get a little extra leverage.
# Use as follows: engage the two prongs and turn piston 180° clockwise. Remove the tool. Use a generic caliper tool or a c-clamp and push the piston in about 2mm. Keep alternating back and forth between the cube tool and the c-clamp until piston is almost all the way in. If you are strong enough, you may not even need the c-clamp - just push with the cube tool as you turn. Instead of the cube, you can even use needle-nose pliers, but then you definitely need the c-clamp.
# Even with this special tool, the rear brakes can be rather difficult, so make sure you have plenty of time. I still recommend purchasing or renting the $50 professional tool cause it is much easier to use.
# If you're totally confused by all this, just take your wheels off and look at the brakes up close. Its simpler than it sounds on paper. And get the Bentley publishers shop manual for your car. That book pays for itself after one or two jobs. If your still at lost, Auto Zone has the loner tool you'll need for $50.00 and you'll get it back after you return the tool and they can give you the step by step instructions mentioned above. Good luck.

How to change rear brakes on a 2006 uplander how to push caliper back in?


Some of these calipers do not have the ability to be pushed back in with a c-clamp or even a GM caliper tool....there is however, a small diamond shaped piece of metal on the caliper (Caliper reset tool) that allows you to wind the piston back in,,,,I just went through the same thing
