If you are careful you can turn them back in with a pair of channel lock pliars. but use caution to only grab the very edge of the piston. I replaced my rear brakes that way and had no problems. if you are talking about the rear pistons for the brake calipers, they are similar to that of the toyotas, you need to goto autozone, or your local parts store and ask for the disk brake tools, they need to be "wound" back in unlike the fronts which will just slide Lostsoul

How do you replace the rear brake pads on a 1989 Lincoln Mark VII LSC if you cannot remove the old ones?

DON'T KNOW IF YOU HAVE THIS , BUT, A SPECIAL TOOL IS REQUIRED TO TURN THE CALIPER BRAKE PISTON BACK INTO THE CALIPER TO ALLOW REMOVAL OF THE PADS THIS IS FOR REAR BRAKES ONLY , THIS SET UP IS PART OF THE PARKING/EMERGENCY BRAKE FOR THIS VEHICLE. Yes there is a special tool but you can get away with a c clamp it will turn as it goes in The only way to remove the brakes is to remove the entire caliper if the pins are stuck you would have to heat them up. Remember to put caliper grease on pins when reinstalling them .

How do the brake caliper go back on a 1985 linclon mark 6 do you us a tool what tools?

The front brake caliper should retract with minimal effort with the aid of a c-clamp and an old brake pad. If it takes alot of pressure to make it retract I would replace the caliper. The rear brake caliper is a different story because it houses the e-brake also. The brake caliper piston must be rotated clockwise as you apply pressure to retract it. This requires a special tool that you can purchase from your local auto parts store. This tool is not expensive, it should be less than $20.
