the piston on the rear calipers will turn in a clockwise motion and that is how they retract.


most caliper pistons can be squeezed in with bigg plyers after you loosen bleeder valve


There not like the front calipers where you put a c-clamp on the piston and squeeze them in, on the rear calipers you have to get a special tool from the parts store and as you push inward you have to turn them in.


The calipers on a Mazda 6 turn inwards you don't push them to compress them.


front or rear turn signals


If the pistons have a cross in them .. Try a large screw driver and turn them while you push down


Some Ford's rear calipers have to be turned in like a screw instead of pushed in like "old fashioned" calipers. I went to Auto ZOne with the same problem and the guy knew exactly what to give me. It's a little adapter that helps you turn the caliper.


Not sure on the explorer but I did rear brakes on a Taurus ( 98) & the piston turned in. I used a set of channel locks & turn them counter clock wise. There is a tool for this.


no. on the front brake calipers the pistons have to be pushed back into the calipers to make room for the new brake pads. on the rear brake calipers the pistons have to be SCREWED back into the calipers. there are notches on the inner edge of the piston rim. you can engage the notches with large needle nose pliers or a large flat washer. turn the piston clockwise as you face it to get it to go in.


According to the 2001 Ford Mustang Owner Guide : Tail lamp , Brake lamp , Turn lamp takes ( # 3157 K bulb )


you take a pair of plyers or a caliper kit from autozone and turn in the calipers. You have to turn them clockwise to make them go back in. do not try and compress them in, you will damage them.



the caliper piston turns clockwise to compress,the gm w-bodys are known for bad rear calipers. gmjim


NO! Brake Calipers are what compress your Brake Pads on to the rotor which turn simeultaniously with your wheels.



first remove the calipers from the carrier then remove pads then calipers can not be pressed in you must use a tool to turn them in, then reinstall in reverse order


On the rear brake calipers look for a hex nut just right at the back of the piston , unbolt it and with the Allen wrench turn right the inner pin carefully until the pads touch the disc and then move back 1/3 turn. and put the cover bolt and that's all. you have to do it in both calipers

The calipers should turn back in with a big scredriver or such! you have to rotate the piston to retract them rotae the pistons clockwise with a large pair of pliers



if you are refering to the fact that you have to twist Ford calipers in order for them to release pressure. then all you have to do it us a pair of fairly sturdy needlenose pliars and catch them on the indent in the caliper and turn. no need to buy a whole new tool when you can do it without it already.


It has 2 different flashers. One for the turn signals and one for the emergency flashers.


Turn the key on if you here a hum under the rear seat it works.


The rear caliper pistons on this car cannot be squeezed back using a C-Clamp like the front assembly. The rear calipers need to be turned to be moved back. Use a large flat tool (I used a chisel) to turn the piston clockwise. Be careful that you don't damage the rubber around the piston.


I believe you need a speaical tool that most parts stores sell, it fits into the piston and you can turn it with a ratchet and extension as the calipers acually turn to go in and out like a screw.
