The back calipers rotate in while compressing. The only way to do this is to have a special tool that is a plastic disk crank that is nearly imposible to find. Do not try the multi-sided metal cube with different nubs. The nubs do not fit. Searched for 3 days to find and ended up having to take it to the shop as Dealership was the only one with the tool.
