06 Grand Prix -- What is the secret to compressing the rear calipers The C clamp will not do it what gives?
The rear calipers are not just compressed, there is a special tool you need. What this tool does, is it allows you to tighten the piston back. Its actually is threaded, so instead of just pushing it back in, you must screw it back in. I think Autozone loans this tool out w/ a deposit, or you can buy a socket adapter for around 10 bucks.

there is a special tool that can be purchased at any auto parts store made specifically for compressing brake caliper pistons. I personally use a 4 inch c-clamp. works every t…ime.
Rear calipers are threaded and have to be "screwed" (because parking brake uses rear calipers) Tool available at Sears or auto parts--not expensive. Answer . Get a 4 inch …C clamp, put the old brake shoe back in place on the piston side and screw down the C clamp. This should do it. If not open the bleeder on this caliper & it will then go in. Be sure to Bleed The Brakes on the rear after this.. cartalk says: Nix on the C clamp, as the Piston needs to be turned to go back in(self-adjuster) clamping will destroy parts.... good luck. dave. Answer (12/19/08). Dave is right on... I just changed my rear brake pads on my '04 Grand Prix. The caliper piston face has a pattern on it that lines up with a "pin" on the back side brake pad. I bought a tool for $15 from O'Reilly AutoParts that is a "universal" tool that has he "pin" pattern to fit several car makes & models.. The piston turned back into the caliper VERY easily. Just be sure to line up the piston face like it was when you first started so it will line up with the back side brake pad "pin".. Mike
Answer . If parking brake uses these calipers - they are threaded special tool (not expensive) is required, availlable at Sears or auto parts to thread piston fully into c…aliper body
You will need a rear brake caliper tool kit. These calipers do not press in. They turn in like tightening a screw. you will notice 2 notchs in the caliper piston this is where… the tool head fits in. . Stop!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do not try to screw back these calipers else you will break them. Im guessing the 06 passat of yours has the motorised HB!!!? if so you need a computer to plug in to ecu then tell it to release the locking pin 1st on the caliper which then allows you to turn em back has normal.... . Failing to do this will 99.0% break them and
with a c clamp. put a block of wood or your old pad over the piston and tighten with clamp.
On the front caliper of a 97 grand prix do you compress the piston with a c clamp or do you need to turn it in?
I did my own brakes on a '98 model very easily. A large C-clamp is the perfect tool for the job. Use a small block of wood between the pot and clamp so that you don't crimp th…e pot by accident. Removing the master cylinder cover will release back pressure. You might be able to compress the pot by hand after doing so. As the calipers get rusty hand power may not be enough. If you can't balance the caliper on the bearing assembly while you work, hang it in the wheel well using a wire coat hanger. Dangling it from the rubber brake hose may cause a split in the hose.
-4c charge can make the exerted force go on another object such as the 5c positive charge. because wen u multiply em' they make a similarity between them such as -4c+5c which …equals to -c or -1c (same thing):)
Can i change the rear brake calipers on a 2005 ford free star to the type that you do not have to trun in but to use a c- clamp to compress the cylinder in so that you can put on the new brake pads?
No you can't. The turn-in mechanism is part of the hand brake system.
Replace the caliper and bleed the brake system.
3c - 12 + 5c = 12 Combine the 'c' terms on the left side: 8c - 12 = 12 Add 12 to each side: 8c = 24 Divide each side by 8: c = 3
c 2 + 5c + 6 = (c + 2)*(c + 3)

Some people say that the 'c' stands for cheap, because the iPhone 5is made out of plastic (polycarbonate frame reinforced with steel).There is no answer to what the 'c' means …but it is presumed that itmeans colour because the 5c comes in 5 colors.
(c - 2)(c - 3)
The simplified answer is: 4c+2b
