Best Answer

A C-clamp, open the clamp wide enough to put it over the piston (round metal thing) then close the C-clamp until it is pushed back far enough to allow brake pads to fit properly. Remove the clamp and your golden

You can use a C-clamp to compress the caliper on just about any vehicle. You might want to place some rags near the Brake Master cylinder because brake fluid will travel back into it from what is left over in the brake lines. If you don't, you will spill brake fluid onto the floor.

The first step is to remove the tire. You will need to remove the caliper as well, and that's held on by two bolts. You'll need a hex key or allen wrench to remove the bolts. Once the caliper bolts are off, you'll need to push the caliper piston back down using a C Clamp. Make sure you have the cover off the master cylinder reservoir, or the brake fluid will not be able to compress. Once that's done, throw the new brake pads in the caliper, reattach the caliper, and bleed the brake system. Once the air is removed from the brake lines, put the tire back on.

How do you reset the brake caliper piston on a 1995 Mazda protege?

After changing pads? - pump brake pedal to set pads against rotor To retract to change pads? If parking brake is not connected to this caliper - compress piston into caliper body with a "C" clamp - if parking brake is installed on this unit a special tool (not expensive) is required because piston is threaded Tool is available at Sears or auto parts ========================= If you're talking about the rear disk pads, they are adjusted using a small screw (hidden behind a nother screw) on the caliper which adjusts the parking brake. You need to turn this screw to back off the calipers in order to install the new pads. Since the calipers are threaded, no amount of pushing will retract them.

How do you change front brake pads 1995 Ford Falcon?

Raise and support the vehicle on jack stands and remove the front wheels. Place the drip pan under the caliper that is being worked on to catch the brake fluid lost when the calipers are compressed. Turn on the ignition key just enough to unlock the steering wheel without turning on the ignition. Turn the wheel all the way to the left if you are working on the right side and vice versa for the opposite side. Use a 10mm socket and loosen the brake bleeder (this is a screw located at the top back of the caliper). Compress the piston back into the caliper by putting the screwdriver into the slot in the middle of the caliper. Put it between the brake pad backing plate and the rotor, and pry the pad in toward the engine and the piston will slowly compress into its bore. As soon as the piston is all the way in the caliper, tighten the bleeder screw. Remove the two bolts in the back of the caliper holding it on. Lift the caliper off its mounting bracket and hang it up, or set it on something so that it does not hang by the hose. It can destroy the hose if the caliper hangs. Remove the brake pads from the caliper and discard them. Remove the two rear bolts holding the caliper-mounting bracket. If this is the first time the rotors are being replaced, there will be two spring lock clips on the studs of the spindle holding the rotor on. Use the wire cutter to remove these clips, then discard them. Remove the rotor if it will just pull off. It may stick somewhat, so hit it a little with the hammer and it will break loose. Install the new rotor and the caliper-mounting bracket. Install the new brake pads onto the bracket and lay the caliper over them. Install the bolts to the caliper and tighten. Do the opposite side in the same manner. do they even make a 1995 falcon ?
