Want this question answered?
rear brake pistons are called actuated pistons. And the twist in and out. You will need a special tool to twist them back into the caliper. Unlike the Front Pistons which can be pushed back.
Most likely you need a special tool to turn the pistons in while they are compressed. AutoZone offers this tool in the loan-a-tool program, part number 27111.
simple. get yourself a wrench set and an actuator tool to push in the rear pistons on the calipers.
Depending on the make/model/year of vehicle, you may have to get a rear caliper tool. Some rear calipers need to be turned to retract them.
Yes. There is a special tool for it.Stocker @ http://www.rdtiburon.com/David @ http://votefordavid.blogspot.com
They are twist in pistons. They do not press in like some that you can use a C-clamp on. There is a special tool I think called a spanner wrench or something like that. If you call an autoparts store they should be able to help you more.
Use a large pair of needle-nose pliers to turn the piston back into the caliper. There is also a "special tool" available which helps push in while turning, but I have never had to use it.
Rear pistons are threaded and a special tool (not expensive) is required. Available at Sears or auto parts
Requires a tool that not only pushes in the caliper but also rotates it as it goes in.
You need a tool mostly used on ford cars that turns the piston while pressing it.
If parking brake is attached to these calipers a special tool (not expensive) is required, because these pistons are threaded Tool available at Sears or auto parts store
There is a tool used to twist the piston back into the caliper I bought mine from Canadian Tire.
