you have to use a big flat head screwdriver or something similar that will fit in one of the slots(it looks like a Philips head) and turn it to the right to get it to go in then just put the pads on and give the brake pedal a few pushes and you good to go

  • YES DO JUST THAT!! The Rear Calipers screw in. Righty Tighty Lefty Loosey. To compress Turn counter Clockwise. You Will Get nowhere by trying to Smash them in.

no don't do that, go to you're local parts store and ask for the rear brake caliper tool to push the piston in with.

How do you remove the front rotors of a 1993 Mercury Topaz?

I just did my 1992 Mercury Topaz. First compress the caliper using a sea clamp of large plyers. Then remove the two bolts holding the caliper using (for 92) size 40 star tool. My rotor was rusted, so spray WD40 around the inside seam diameter hole which is just outside the center bolt. After knocking it a few times the rotor came off. It may look like you need to remove the center nuts, BUT YOU DONT. Make sure you clean the new rotor, install it and then the caliper with the new pads. Make sure you compress the caliper all the way before trying to install the new pads. When I tried to compress the second wheel caliper after doing the other side, I had to open the master cylinder cap in order to let pressure off before being able to compress the second caliper wheel.
