Question about Volkswagen Passat
Hi On a VW PASSAT.
Just you need to turn with the Turn style tool. to push down the brake piston.
If is hard. Open a LITTE the BLEADER valve to to DROP a few of the brake fluid. Bucause if you force to much. The Brake master cylinder and ABS Module seals can be damaged.
Do a Little by Little. with the bleader valve open. is the right prosses to do that.
But don't forget That maybe your car Require DOT4. Don't put DOT3. is not the same.
I include a picture of your calliper. and the tool.
I hope this help on your problem.

Your Passat has screw-in rear pistons. Only the fronts will compress. For the rears go to AutoZone and use their tool loan program. Leave a deposit at the counter and they'll loan you the piston kit that will allow you to twist the pistons back into the calipers. You'll want to remove the brake fluid reservoir cap before you do this, so that you're not fighting against the hydraulic pressure in the lines. Take the cap off, and size up the proper piston tool to the caliper pistons on your car. Use the kit to screw the pistons back into the caliper enough so you can fit the new pads over the rotor, replace the cap, and pump your brake pedal several times to reseat the pads against the rotor. Then you're done:)
