Question about 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
I am trying to change the pads on a 96 oldsmoblie, but I can't get the caliper to compress completely. I called autozone and they told me to bleed them a little, but that didn't work either. Can someone please help me? Thanks, Tiff
Your caliper is OK. you need to positon the C clamp right in the center and then try to get it in

If you cant push the piston back with a c-clamp You need a new caliper

The spacer allows the caliper to move slightly as the brakes are applied, and as the pads wear, so it has to be on the caliper. You should take a C clamp and compress the pistons all the way into the caliper to allow it to be installed with both pads in place. If the metal spacer is a problem and wont allow you to install the caliper, tap the spacer into the caliper a bit.
