No, sounds like just one of your pistons is frozen. Incase you haven't done this yet, also fyi, you have to collapse both pistons at the same time. Try placing a strip of wood across both pistons and squeeze them both at the same time with your C-clamp. If one is hung up, this may free it up, or even it out so it fits back in the caliper properly. Or, I don't know if you didn't know this about both pistons, but if you squeeze only one, all the fluid will push across to the other and push it out, causing it to partially come out and be crooked in the caliper. Good luck!!

I need to rebuild both of my front calipers on my 2000 FLHPI. The pistons are sticking, so I bought the seal kits (rebuild kits). Now, aside from disassembling the calipers, what should I do to free the...


If by "disassembling the calipers" you mean splitting them open, DO NOT do that.
You detach the caliper so that you can remove the pads and get at the piston, but then what you should do is to simply pop the piston out.
That can be done simply by pumping the brake pedal, using air pressure (with a rag to prevent the piston from flying around), or with a grease gun.
Then once the piston is out, you simply wire brush any corrosion off. If the piston is so pitted that it can not be made smooth and will leak, then it should be replaced.
If you wash them out with anything other than brake fluid, then be sure to blow out any residue with compressed air.
Use lots of brake assembly lube, and ensure the new dust seal is water tight. Bleeding the brakes will flush out any remaining dust.

Can't compress rear piston on 2000 Bonneville. Replaced front rotors and pads, no problem with piston. Replaced R-rear rotor and pads but piston is frozen.???


  1. To retract the caliper piston into the caliper bore use a spanner type wrench to turn the piston. You can also rent the correct tool from a local parts store or you may use a pair of channel lock pliers and apply slight pressure with a C clamp. You must be very careful not to damage rubber boot or piston. Turn the piston clockwise until it bottoms out fully in the caliper.
  2. Align the cutouts in the caliper piston to the alignment pins on the back of the brake pads.

How do you fix sticking caliper pistons for a 1987 dodge mini ram van


If its the piston thats sticking you can purchase a kit for it but your probably better off buying the caliper. If the caliper is sticking and not sliding back and forth you need to buy a brake hardware kit for it. From my experience the brake hose usally collapses on the inside and causes it to stick you might want to check this out.

Help-Ford E-350 Brake problem


First, if the recall applies to your van, it can be done anytime. There is no time limit on recalls. Call your dealer with your 17 Digit VIN number and they can check. Please rate as solved if this is what you need. thanks.

Here is the recall:

Safety Recall 92S44 - Certain 1988-1991 F250/350 Trucks for Loss of Front Brake Effectiveness
Affected Vehicles
Certain 1988-1991 F250/350 trucks over 8500 lb GVW with 7.5L EFI or 7.3L diesel (4x2 and 4x4) and 5.8L EFI (4x4 only). Trucks under 8500 lb GVW. 5.8L EFI (4x2) and F-Super Duty light trucks are not involved in this recall. Specific vehicle information is as follows:

AFFECTED VEHICLES ASSEMBLY PLANT PRODUCTION DATES F250/350 Norfolk Job#1 1988 to 4/18/91 Kansas City Job#1 1988 to 4/25/91 Ont. Truck Job#1 1988 to 5/1/91 Mich. Truck Job#1 1988 to 5/11/91 Twin Cities Job#1 1988 to 5/29/91
Reasons For Recall
In certain extremely severe driving conditions, the vehicle may experience a loss of front brake effectiveness due to overheating of brake fluid. These vehicles have a split brake system and the rear brakes remain operational. This condition has been reported primarily in vehicles operated in mountainous regions, and on vehicles that have been in service for a minimum of one to two years and where the brake fluid has absorbed moisture from the air, lowering its boiling point. It usually involves heavily loaded vehicles driving on long, steep grades, or when towing at, or near, the Maximum Gross Combination Weight Rating (GCWR) for towing. Warm weather also appears to contribute to this condition. To correct this condition, dealers will install insulators in the front brake caliper pistons on all the affected trucks. 7.5L EFI engine equipped trucks will also have insulation installed on selected portions of the front brake lines.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PART NUMBER DESCRIPTION CLASS DEALER PRICE F2TZ-2C361-A Kit-Brake Caliper Piston Insulator (All Except 7.5L Engines) BG F2TZ-2C361-B Kit-Brake Tube Insulator Jacket (Required Only For Vehicles Equipped With 7.5L EFI Engines) Kit Also Includes Brake Caliper Piston Insulators

Brake Caliper Piston Insulator Kit
Installation Instructions
  1. Remove the front wheel and tire assemblies.
  2. Remove the brake calipers from the rotors. Refer to the appropriate shop manual for the procedures.
  3. Remove the inner and outer brake linings.
  4. Inspect the brake caliper pistons. If the pistons are phenolic, (brown in color) no modifications are required. Reassemble the calipers as described in the shop manual. If the truck is equipped with a 7.5L EFI engine, install the brake tube insulator kit. If the truck is not equipped with an 7.5L EFI engine, install the wheels and tires and release the truck.
    If the pistons are aluminum, continue as described below.
  5. Remove the steel retainer and Nomex thermal washers from the kit.
  6. Place a steel retainer on a bench with the tabs facing up. Refer to Figure 1.
  7. Place a Nomex thermal washer over the tabs so that it rests on the barb of each tab. Then, carefully press it over the barb of one of the tabs. Repeat the procedure for each of the remaining tabs.

    • NOTE:
      Do not bend the tabs. The inner edge of the washer may crease slightly as it passes over the barb. This is permissible provided that the crease can be smoothed out once the washer is in place. The washer must be installed without tearing.

  8. Push the washer down onto the back face of the retainer. Be sure it is seated uniformly on the retainer. Once installed, do not use an adhesive or other aid to hold it in place. This is neither necessary nor permissible.
  9. Snap an assembled insulator into the inside diameter of each caliper piston. Be sure the assembly is firmly seated on the rim of the piston. See Figure 2.
  10. Install the inner and outer brake linings.
  11. Clean the caliper slide surfaces on the caliper and the spindle with a wire brush and lubricate with Disc Brake Caliper Slide Grease, D7AZ-19590-A (ESA-M1C172-A) or equivalent.
  12. Reinstall the brake calipers. Refer to the appropriate shop manual for the procedures.
  13. Install the wheel and tire assemblies.

How do you compress the piston in the rear caliper on a 2002 VW passat W8 moel.


Hi On a VW PASSAT.
DON'T Hammered...
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.
