    YOU CAN USE LARGE C -CLAMP ON FRONT BRAKES TO COMPRESS CALIPER PISTON BACK INTO CALIPER BORES. BESURE TO REMOVE A LITTLE BRAKE FLUID FROM MASTER CYLINDER. BEFORE COMPRESSING CALIPER PISTON.WHEN YOU ARE DONE CHANGING FRONT BRAKES.
    PUMP BRAKE PEDAL TO SEAT FRONT BRAKES PADS AGAINST BRAKE ROTOR,AND ALSO CHECK BRAKE FLUID LEVEL.

Mazda lantis 1994.how can I get the brake piston pushed back. I used a G clamp and undid the bleeding nipple but it wont move.


Some pistons do not push back in, they wind back in. You can buy or hire the tool (here in the UK you can) but it can be cheaper to get a local garage to do it. Some wind the same way to retract, but others are handed and the left side goes one way and the right side the opposite.
I am not saying yours does this, but it might be worth investigating. Has the piston got what looks like something that a winding tool will fit to, or is it completely flat faced?

My brake pads on my vauxhall tigra are gone and i've bought new ones but i want to know how to change them myself


dead simple m8 the obvious, jack up the car and suport with axle stands, take off your lid to your brake fluid (needed for when the piston is pushed back in) then lock your wheel over for easy acces,
undo the two bolts holding on your caliper at the rear once you have the caliper off tacking car not to stretch the brake hose, locate the long thin rods traveling through your brake pad holdin it to the caliper and tap it out witha punch or screwdriver remove the retaining clip and out they pop. give the caliper a quick clean wind in the piston with a g clamp or somthing similar slot in your new pads and repeat the procces to refit all in all it should take you 10 - 20 mins a side, hope this helps

Trying to fit new pads to vw touran rear axle and have pushed piston back enough to get it off but cant get it back in any further to fit it over new pads and disk, wont fully retract or cant get it to ?


Try removing the brake reservoir cap under the hood where you fill the brake fluid up. This will release some pressure also use a c-clamp if you haven't already to push the piston.

I AM TRYING TO RE NEW THE REAR BREAK PADS ON MY VW CADDY VAN , BUT HAVE FOUND IT IMPOSSIBLE TO PUSH THE PISTON ON THE CALIPER BACK IN ORDER TO POSITION OVER THE NEW PADS . I HAVE CARRIED OUT THE SAME...


hi from uk the rear brake calipers are auto adjust and so to reset the pistons back into calipers you need to rewind clockwise the piston whilst pushing piston back there is a tool for this purpose which does job in minutes however!! you can improvise if you have an old socket and hacksaw ? you can look at piston and see there are two slots on it? if you cut away an old socket so left with prongs to fit these slots then fit t bar and short extension to socket then you can push and turn piston back make sure slots are in line as to able fitting of new pads one has notch on rear face to insert in piston slot this also works for other models with rear calipers ? cheaper than the tool at £40 to £60 inthe uk dependant on makers hope this helps/inspires you ?

hi assume you wish to fit new pads ? if so the the rear caliper pistons are not as front calipers just push back you have to wind back the pistons whilst applying pressure to piston there is a tool specially for this purpose which saves time and effort cheapest un uk is the one made by draper tool Co see motor stores? however! you can improvise and manually wind pistons back using the U shape spanner with 2x prongs that is commonly used/supplied to circular saws and this is spanner for changing blades ? does the trick if you have or can borrow one? look at pistons and you will see where tool locates you just turn c/wise and press piston as you do and it will retract have a little patience! the most important tool in the box that money can't buy ! hope this helps best wishes from uk

Vw golf brakes rear seized


You have to clamp the flexible break hose with the appropriate tool that will not damage hose so that no pressure can go back up the break line when then piston is wound back.You crack the bleed nipple just enough that it only flows out when the pressure from the piston being wound back in pushes it out.Once piston is all the way back in retighten the bleed nipple,reassemble caliper etc and bleed.The reason you vent off fluid this way is not to put back pressure on the ABS,Bleeding the brakes is easier and the worst of the fluid(most stressed)is evacuated from the brake lines.Last thing top up the master cylinder with exactly the same fluid that is in the vehicle.Mixing fluids can be hazardous in respect of the ABS and seals throughout the brake system.When winding your pistons take special care as the pistons wind back in in opposite directions.
