How do you depress the rear caliper on an 07 malibu when changing the pads


The best way to do it is to open the brake bleeder valve on that wheel, get a

large C clamp that you can put on the caliper and as you tighten, the caliper

will start to collapse, once collapsed close the bleeder valve, take off the brakes.

good luck!

I HAVE REPLACED THE RIGHT REAR CALIPER ON MY 94 LINCILN CONTINENTAL 5 TIMES IN THE PAST COUPLE OF DAYS. THE SEALS INSIDE THE CALIPER ARE BUSTING EVERY TIME I GO TO BLEED THE SYSTEM AFTER INSTALLATION. ...


Never change a caliper without changing the brake hose. I changed a 94 lincoln Continental rear caliper 3 times before discovering the brake hose had internally collapsed. Chaged it out, solved problem immediately. Your problem sounds a little different however... Mine, the rear caliper would not release.

How to collapse rear calipers on mini cooper


Did you notice the brake fluid level in the master cylinder before you tried to collapse the calipers? You should see a rise in level as you collapse them (however far they did collapse). If you're not seeing any change in the level (it should fill up) you might have a plugged valve between the caliper and the master cylinder. Loosen the brake fluid line to the caliper and try collapsing it again. If still no go, start dismantling the caliper and look for bent, broken, stuck or mal-adjusted pieces.

How do you collapse the rear caliper on 04 mustang?


The rear caliper piston needs to be turned at the same time it is being compressed. Autozone rents or borrows the tool you will need for this repair. If the piston will not retract into the caliper, the caliper will need to be replaced. Craig

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.

REAR BRAKE REPLACEMENT


ase mechanic:

those calipers in the rear have slots on the piston right. that means you have to turn the pistons in clockwise. sometimes a pair of needle nose pliers put in the slots and turn will work, otherwise there is a rear caliper brake tool to turn those pistons in.
