The caliper pistons should be able to be pushed in by hand, but if that is too difficult use a screw driver to gain leverage off of the caliper body itself - being careful to not damage any seals.
you have to turn the piston like a bolt
vacuum assisted disc brakes
with a c clamp. put a block of wood or your old pad over the piston and tighten with clamp.
Cailbers have NO adjustment. They have a piston that moves in and out as the brake is pushed down.
sorry i cant answer that ? but just curious I have a 2003 Pontiac grand am se and the front brakes have to be replaced about every 7 months, are you haviing any problem like that with your car?
For Disc Brakes...simply use a 7mm Allen wrench to remove the 2 bolts from the inside of the caliper and use a large C-clamp to put pressure on the hydrolic piston. The two pads slide right off for replacement. Reverse directions to install new ones.
the only tools need are a 17 inch socket a rachet a "C" clamp to push the piston back in.

The price for brakes for a 2005 Chevy Malibu Maxx will vary depending on the store. The prices for the brakes start at $99.95.
raise auto and place jack stands under auto, remove tire , unloosen the caliber bolts, remove caliber, take out front brake pad and use a C clamp to push the pistons back into the caliber, remove rear brake pad and install new pads and place caliber back and bolt on and then pump brakes until they are hard again
Brakes CV joints or bearings.
there has to be a special tool .. the caliber needs to be turned while its being compressed. i used a pair of channel locks to turn the caliber while using a c clamp to compressing it good luck.. keep an eye on the fluid level..
To change the brakes on a Mazda 3 shouldn't be rocket science. However it took me a lil while to figure it out. It's almost the same as changing regular caliper brakes except instead of using a C-clamp or similar object to compress the piston...use a pair of needlenose pliers and turn the tip of the piston in a clockwise rotation to compress it. A clamp will not work. aside from that everything should be pretty simple. Hope this helps make sure to apply pressure while turning
Which allen wrench to change brakes on mazda tribute 4wd 2005?
You need a rear disc brake caliper tool set for this job. A pair of needle nose pliers can work also, but damage to the caliper is likely, if you're trying to get it done in a hurry.These rear calipers cannot be compressed with a clamp like the front calipers can be.The piston actually screws into the caliper. Again, look for a disc brake caliper tool set. Harbor Freight Tools sells a $20 kit that will do the job.
