What do you do if the C clamp will not push the ear of the brake caliper in so you can change the pads on a 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme?

Look at the pistons in the caliper. If it is a cup type piston there could be several reasons for this, (requiring researching technical manuals). But if it is a solid piston with what appears to be 4 raised tabs around the piston in a + configuration this suggests that you may need to screw the piston back into the caliper turning it clockwise. Sometimes this takes quite a bit of turning. Otherwise the pistons are stuck, or you might need to open the bleed screws and compress the pistons as some vehicles have one-way pressure valves in the system. . To add a '96 cutlass caliper piston has to be screwed in clockwise with also applying steady pressure

There are kits available that let you bleed the brakes automatically and without the need for another person to assist you. If you do not have the kit, have a friend pump the brakes and hold the pedal down while you loosen the bleeder screw on the caliper. Repeat that process until no more air pops out between adjustments.
