Hi, I am not sure of your entire question, but I did a similar job not so long ago. From what I can make out, you are trying to push the pistons in so that you can replace the rear brake pads?
You have to both compress and twist (I recall clockwise) at the same time. The way I did this was to use a common G-Clamp which has a swivel mounting piece at the end such that you can screw in the clamp and then use some pipe pliers to grab and twist the piston.
It is a bit of a slow and cumbersome method but it is one way of doing it without the special tool (that Renault will not sell you!).
Hope this helps.

Do i need any special tools to change laguna front brake pads


The only specialty tool you will need outside of a good ratchet set is a caliper tool to push the piston back into the caliper. You can rent these from most auto parts store for free with a small returnable deposit.

Do not try to push the piston in without this tool as you would do with older vehicles. It must be rotated as it is pushed in and failure to do it right will ruin the caliper assembly.

Thanks for using FixYa, feel free to come on back with any other issues that may arise.

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.

Passat 2003 tdi, brake pad change..


Proper size wrenches and a large C-clamp to push piston back into the caliper is only tools for the front, but back disk brakes require special tool to TURN the piston as it is pushed back into caliper to reset emergency brake. This tool can often be borrowed from Auto parts store or purchased from Harbor Freight http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=40732 for about $20. Don't try to service rear disks without the tool, Calipers can be broken if not retracted properly!
