When changing rear rotors on a 97 Cougar do you need a C clamp or a special tool to get the piston back in?
you can also purchase a socket that works for about 30 bucks at
most automotive parts stores or take to a shop most will do the
brakes for about 50 bucks. Most important to not damage the piston
or could cause the seals to leak and brake pressure to fade
yes. I just had to do this to my 96 xr7. you have to twist your
caliper at the same time as applying high amounts of pressure. I
attached a C clamp to it and used a pipe wrench to turn it
clockwise. Very long process. It costs about fifteen bucks to rent
a tool that will do this very easily for you....
