We ran into that problem on our 96 Buick, seems that there is a special tool that turns the brake piston counter clock wise to decompress it. Most of the parts stores have them. If you use a C Clamp to try to force it to decompress then expect to replace the caliper. This has to do with the fact that the parking brake is on the rear. Good Luck maybe this helps
BUY THE TOOL..........ROTATE THE REAR CALIPER PISTON.........A C-CLAMP WILL DAMAGE THE CALIPER. BAD, BAD, BAD. <YOU> SHOULD BUY A SHOP MANUAL.
The answer provided is fine if it applied to the front brakes. The rears on a mustang of this vintage have a caliper piston that needs to be turned clockwise. There is a special tool for this, some have had sucess using a beefy set of needlenose to turn the piston. The tool is only about 10 bucks.
Good Luck.AdviceThe beefy needlenose trick has always done it for me, but remember if the piston still wont go in, don't be surprised. Those calipers do seem to seize a fair amount of the time. I've replaced several sets.

Hi there ! I have just renovated my front and rear brakes om my Passat 1.8T 1998. This is the way to retract the rear Lucas caliper piston: You need to press and clockwise twist the brake piston in the caliper. First I tried with my standard tools but it was to hard so I purchased a special retraction tool f
Yes, wheels from a 1998 Mustang will work on a 2000 Mustang.
Could be a frozen piston inside the caliper Could be a defective brake hose Could be a damaged (pinched) brake line
Will a 1998 3.8 mustang engine fit in a 2000 Mustang 3.8 engine?
Web Piston was created in 1998.
The back brakes on my Honda Accord are disc brakes. After removing the brake cylinder assembly you will see the brake cylinder piston end has a slot in it. The short pin on the back side of the inner brake pad fits into this slot, but also it is used to 'Turn' (clock-wise) the piston back into the cylinder so you fit the assembly back over the new 'thicker' pads. You can not 'press' this piston back into the cylinder.
