The calipers on a Mazda 6 turn inwards you don't push them to compress them.
No need to rotate the front caliper pistons as you compress the front calipers. That process is only for the rear calipers because of the parking brake mechanism.
the piston on the rear calipers will turn in a clockwise motion and that is how they retract.
You will need the tool to retract the calipers. The piston in the rear calipers have to be turned clockwise as you compress them back in.
are u trying to change them?
The piston on the rear calipers will not compress as most vehicles do, they must be screwed back to there fully recessed position.
Yes. If your question is regarding the operation of the calipers. They do operate in the same manner as the front calipers.
Try exerting pressure while turning clockwise to retract
With a C clamp, the same as any other car.
with a large pear of channel locks,or a caliper compressor
The rear brake calipers screw back in. This is because of the park brake. There is a tool that you can either buy or rent from one of the larger parts stores.
It requires a special tool to twist the piston back into the caliper.
The front calipers push in with a large clamp to pliers. The rear calipers require a special tool that twists the piston while pushing it in.
you take a pair of plyers or a caliper kit from autozone and turn in the calipers. You have to turn them clockwise to make them go back in. do not try and compress them in, you will damage them.
Unlike the front calipers, pistons in the rear usually have to be rotated to compress them.
If the parking brake is connected to these calipers a special tool is required (not expensive) because piston is threaded. Tool available at Sears or auto parts store
You can purchase a disc brake tool for compressing the calipers at any auto parts dealer for about $8.00. You will also need to have the brake fluid filler cap off.

The rear track of the 2002 Mazda MX-5-Miata is 4 ft. 8.7 in. (56.7 in.).
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 caliper body
You need a caliper tool and a ratchet. Caliper tool is a cube with prongs on it, a couple dollars at a parts store or online. Just turn the caliper tool and on the caliper and it will compress.
you use a c clamp that's how i do it on all the the vehicle's that i work on if this help's you
Could have either on the rear. Both were an option.
Some Ford's rear calipers have to be turned in like a screw instead of pushed in like "old fashioned" calipers. I went to Auto ZOne with the same problem and the guy knew exactly what to give me. It's a little adapter that helps you turn the caliper.
The rear disc break pistons on Mazda are not to be pushed in. Instead you turn them in clockwise.
