Best Answer

Depending on the make/model/year of vehicle, you may have to get a rear caliper tool. Some rear calipers need to be turned to retract them.

Unlike the front calipers, pistons in the rear usually have to be rotated to compress them.


How do you compress the caliper piston on the rear of a 1988 buick riveria?

I just changed my rotors and pads all the way around. The front pistons compress (used a C-clamp). The rear pistons screw clockwise back into the caliper. Good luck, I hope this helped. Rob in Idaho


How do you change the rear brake pads on a 2003 f350?

I just did mine. Use a screw driver to press the brake pads away from the rotor and compress the caliper pistons back some so you can remove the caliper off of hte rotor. Losen and remove the bolts to the brake caliper. DO NOT DISCONNECT the brake line from the caliper! Get you a c-clamp and a piece of 1/4 board about 4 inches long. Once you have removed the caliper from the mount and removed the brake pads support the caliper with one hand. Place the wood over the caliper pistons and using the c-clamp place it over the wood and center of both pistons and other side of caliper to compress the pistons back into the caliper. Make sure you DO NOT PINCH the rubber boots on the pistons. Once you have compressed the pistons back into the calipers install your new pads and calipers back on the mounting surface and tighten the bolts back to torque specs.
