Open Bleeder screw. If talking about rear caliper, piston must be turned clockwise, with brake "Cube" to retract.

SOURCE: cannot get rear brake caliper

You need to buy an ABS brake caliper tool. Or try using molgrips or adjustable plyers becouse the piston needs to screw in to enable it to collapse.

Right Side Brakes keep holding and not releasing


Hi Tommy, I'm glad to help! There are only 5 things that can cause brakes to hold: (1) Calipers are sticking. NOTE: There are several reasons calipers stick, there are internally frozen meaning you need new calipers. Here's how to check them release the nut that holds the hose to the caliper when the fluid bleed out and the calipers do not release pressure from the brakes then they are internally frozen, replace them. (2) Hose's are calapsed internally. You check the hoses in the same way, release the bolt and if the calipers DO Release pressure from the brakes then you know it's the hoses. (3) The actual metal lines going to the back of the Vehicle could be damaged. Example: One time one of the rear brakes would not release pressure and I found where the line goes acroos the rear axle something had hit the line and smashed it flat and so it was holding brake pressure on the wheel. (4) Let's not forget how much dirt and grime builds up on the brakes themselves. Example: I found one time where the LANDS where the brake shoes slide were so dirty that the brake pad itself was stuck and holding the brake pressure on that wheel. (5) The Master Cylinder, not very often, but I have seen the ports in the master cylinder clog-up and will not bleed back to release brake pressure. This is a few thing for you to check out that will help you find the problem yourself and save you money. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Tommy.

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.

Cannot get rear brake caliper piston to calapse how is it done


I believe that the rear calipers on your vehicle also serve as part of the parking brake. If so, the piston must be turned and compressed at the same time. There is a neat little "multi-tool you can get from most parts houses to do this with, and... they are pretty inexpensive.

I cant get the new back brake pad on my 98 jeep grand cherokee


If the caliper is damaged it will not allow the piston to be retracted enough to put the pad in, use a caliper compression tool, available at most parts stores to compress it, otherwise the caliper may need to be replaced.
