How do you push the piston completely in the caliper?
Take the cap off the the top of the master cylinder where you
put your break fluid in and push back. Watch out because the fluid
will go all over the place. So make sure you have a rag ready.

How do you get the piston bake inside the boot on a front brake caliper?
You have to have a air compressor to do it. Take an air gun and insert it in the hole on the caliper were the brake line goes to it. Then take the piston in one hand and start it in the caliper while you are blowing air into it and the air will push the rubber boot out around the piston as you push the piston in. It is alittle trickey, But that's how you do it.

How do you put the rear disc brake cylinder back in the caliper after it is been accidentally pushed out on a 1996 Ford Taurus?
If it has come out completely, lubricate the disc brake piston and the piston bore (in the caliper) with clean brake fluid. Make sure the dust boot is clean and is seated in the caliper. Using a turning motion (back & forth), roll the lip of the dust boot over the piston and push the piston into the caliper by hand as far as you can go. You'll need a c-clamp and a block of wood (or an old brake pad) so that you can push the piston all the way into the bore. Go slowly as you are pushing and keep an eye on the piston so that it goes in straight with no resistance. You don't want to damage the sides of the piston. If the piston goes to the bottom with no problem, seat the dust boot lip into the piston groove. You'll have to bleed the brakes once the pads are in and the caliper is reinstalled.

How do you push down the caliper on an 08 Honda accord?
There's a little screw on the side of the caliper with a whole in the top of it. Loosen that a little bit and you should just be able to push in the caliper. They make a tool which is basically a bar and a screw so the bar pushes on the mounting part of the caliper and the screw pushes on the caliper piston.
Asked in Mazda 3
Why wont the Brake caliper piston compress on my Mazda?
on a mazda3 rear caliper there are two dimples in the piston, you can use needle nose pliers to turn the piston while you push on it, or you can rent a caliper compression tool from a local auto parts store, if there is a harbor freight in your area you can buy the tool for around $20. using a c clamp will damage the caliper, it has to have pressure and rotation to be compressed

How do you depress rear caliper on a 2004 Ford Freestar?
---- You have to turn it (caliper piston) as you are depressing the piston back into the caliper. You can't just "jam" it in. I used a caliper tool (for depressing the caliper) and turned the piston with large jaw pliers. This gives both inward pressure and the turning motion. I turned it clockwise and that seemed to work. There is a special tool you can buy to turn the piston as you push it back into the body of the caliper but if you work carefully and you are VERY aware of the rubber boot (don't rip it) then pliers are ok (don't tell the Ford dealer). Cover the pliers with something so you don't scratch/ruin the piston. The front brakes are just a standard push - don't need to turn them. Why do the back brakes work this way? Has to do with the parking brake. If you look you can see that it is attached to the caliper on the rear.

Wind the piston back on a brake caliper?
If you are wanting to colaspe the piston so you can fit new pads in the caliper, first open the master cylinder, then use a "c" clamp or "c" clamp vise grips to slowly push the piston back enough to place the pads in and then fit caliper over your rotor.Keep in mind there may be a mess at the master cylinder.
Asked in Ford 500
How do you push in rear caliper piston on a Ford 500?
Have noticed that Ford still uses the screw style pistons on the rear calipers. To retract the piston use either a caliper/piston tool or a set of needle nose pliers. Turn the piston clockwise to get it back in but take note of the position of the grooves as they normally need to align so that a imaginary straight line through the grooves points to the center of the caliper.
