Attach a brake bleeder tube to the bleeder valve, loosen but dont remove caliper mounting bolts. with the old inboard disc pad still installed and the outer disc pad removed use a large "C" clamp to apply pressure while bleeding the brake fluid. This allows the cylinder to retract into the caliper without allowing air to enter the system. Also a reminder, As you know the caliper assembly is a little heavy and you'll want to support its weight so it is not "hanging" by its expensive hydralic brake line (hose). a metal coat hanger tied to the coil spring and run through the caliper mounting hole works well.

How do you change rear brake pads and depress the piston on a 2006 Audi A6?

Remove the top bolt on the caliper. you need to turn the bolt while holding the nut. The caliper will pivot on the lower bolt. Remove the old pads and you can now push the piston while turning it clockwise to screw it into the cylinder. You have to push and turn because the cylinder is threaded, but only part way.

How do you change the seals on a brake caliper?

Changing seals on a brake caliper is relatively easy.It's the disassembly and reassembly that is the hard part when putting the piston back in.First of all,the type of caliper is important.Can you tell me what type it is? And is it front or rear? Rear wheel calipers can be especially hard depending on the vehicle.The use of pneumatic tools is needed for this type of repair and a cylinder hone to clean the bore of the caliper also.If you want more details,I'll watch this question.Good luck!

How do you change the front brake pads on a 1985 Pontiac Firebird including releasing the pressure of the caliper?

I don't know exactly how to do it on that particular car without looking at it, but in general disc brakes are all pretty much the same. Just remove the two bolts holding the calipar to steering nuckle, its probably an Alan in that car. take the caliper off, it may be tight. Use a C-clamp and one of the old pads and compress the cylinder of the caliper all the way back. It should be tight, but not really tight. If you have a lot of trouble getting it to compress, then the caliper is no good. lube all the slides for the bolts, I think there are 2 little cylinders that go around the two main bolts. clean them and lube them before putting the caliper back on. replace the brake pads and put the caliper back on and put the bolts back and tighten. When you compress the cylinder in the caliper, brake fluid may start coming out of the master cylinder. Don't worry, your just pushing all the fluid back up, and if there is too much in there, it comes out the top of the master cylinder, but this doesn't hurt anything.
