You have to push it back in, as you did

Now you need a tool to turn the parking
brake adjuster in


Push-in while turning

Helps if you open bleeder

Have to bleed all 4 corners every
2 years anyway

Having a problem reinstalling Rear Brake Caliper


I am not sure what kind of vehicle we are talking about. not all rear calipers have a screw type piston. to take a stab in the dark at your problem as far as lining up the caliper when reinstalling the bolts get both bolts started before tightening. If your problem is fitting the new pads and caliper over the rotary it would be necessary to push the piston further back into the caliper. if it is a screw type or just requires you to push it back always push or screw it back all the way till it bottoms out after installation it will take a couple pumps of the brake pedal to set everything back to specs. FYI when pushing the caliper back I do not like clamping the hose or backing off the bleeder screw to me it leaves to much room for erorr. i prefer to pop the master cylinder cap off and then just lay it on there then begain to back the pistons up that way there is no fliud loss nor a chance for air to breach the system. good luck friend.

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.

WAS CHANGING BRAKES AND ROTORS ON MY 2003 RENDEZVOUS AND NOW CALIBER WILL NOT GO BACK IN DOES THIS MEAN THAT IT IS BAD WAS THE REAR


You may need to rotate the piston in the caliper, instead of just squeezing it in with a c-clamp-also, is the master cylinder cap loose? Do not remove it, but it needs to be loose if you are trying to press the pistons in the bores. I use a pair of needle nose plyers to turn the screw-type rear caliper pistons in.

How do I get the caliper to fit back over the new pads, those being obviously thicker because they are new. I can't figure out how to get the cylinder on the caliper compressed to fit over the new pads. My...


the pistons on the rear brake calipers on many modern cars screw in and out unlike the front caliper pistons that just slide in and out.This is due to the handbrake using the rear calipers for handbrake operation. A special tool is normally required that screws the pistons back in so that you can fit the new pads. On many cars one side will be a left hand thread and the other a right hand thread. Some cars will be the same thread. These rear pistons will not just push in. Good luck.

Can not get rear break piston to compress to allow for new pads


The rear disk brake piston does not compress back into the caliper, it has notces on the caliper piston that a tool fits into and the caliper piston is actually turned or screwed back into the caliper, and a notch in the piston must also be aligned to fit the the small protrusion from the backing plate of the inner brake pad.

The brake tool can be obtained from most auto part stores, and it is usually square with protrusions sticking out from the sides in different patterns to fit various caliper pistons, and it usually attaches to a 3/8" drive extension and ratchet.

Do not compress this type of caliper piston because the caliper can damaged.

How to Fully retract piston into caliper body using a "C" clamp


The rear brakes on the 2004 need to be compressed with a special tool available at any parts store. You need to "screw" the caliper piston in instead of pushing it in with the "C" clamp.

2006 honda accord rear brake pads


You can screw the rear caliper pistons back in, by using a needle nose pliers and turning the cross or x notch in a clockwise direction. both caliper pistons will turn the same way. The reason they "screw" out, is for positive locking pressure when the parking brake is engaged.

Changing rear pads on 04 biuck lesaber, can't get but one in.


The rear brake caliper piston doesnt push back, it takes a specail $7 tool from Auto Zone or other part store, the caliper piston screws back into the caliper. pushing it back may damage the caliper, be careful here.

Rear calipers


Yep - Ford uses screw-in rear pistons on the calipers. You can go to AutoZone and rent the piston retracting tools to get the calipers back in where they need to be. Look at the face of the piston - see the two notches across from each other? That's where the pins on the retracting tool will sit, so that you can screw them in. Make sure you remove the brake fluid reservoir cap to make it easier to screw them in, and then put it back on as soon as you're done.
