What year and model? Stop pushing. Some of these have a ratcheting piston meaning it has to be pushed and turned at the same time. If you strip it out, the parking/emergency brake will NOT work. let me know the year and model and I will get you instructions as well as a pic of the tool/s to be used.

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.

Compressing the rear caliper i am trying to compress rear caliper with a c clamp and it wont move


Some caliper pistons are the wind back type.
You will need to buy a special tool to wind the piston back with.
Usually fairly cheap .
The Pistons usually wind back in a clockwise motion.
Hope this helps.

I can't seem to compress calipers for replacing rear disc brake pads, why?


open the blled valve and try to compress, if it does not compress make sure your emergency barke is not on, if it's not on then compress calipers if it won't compress you may have a sticking caliper,if sticking remove one caliper and push the brake pedal down it should dislodge the stuck brake caliper if not you have a bad master cylinder check valve.

Changing the rear brake pads on 91 mu


Chalk the front wheels, car is on jackstands i hope, release the handbrake, use the old pad with a c- clamp to compress the pistion on the caliper, install new pads. may have to take the cap off the master cylinder, if none of this works, open the bleeder valve, and compress the piston, rebleed the caliper.
