Rear Right Caliper


Recommended Posts

Oh Boy,.....here we go again...the piston of my rear right caliper only pushes back an inch or so ( with applied pressure by c clamp) then is stuck! called EVERY imaginable place - noone has it...and now I'm stuck...

any help?64642419991__9BA2066F-E842-461F-8A53-F0DC80FBCF9F.jpeg.b439669b95503903bbaa39832c74ad32.jpeg64642377299__F29DD53B-259A-4032-964E-7391543CC571.jpeg.d9db27df63e2781453ff378d4ea17b23.jpeg

Most rear caliper pistons screw back into the caliper body instead of just pressing back in. Are there indentations on the face of the piston where this tool could work?

Don't keep pressing on it, you may damage it. I'm not familiar with these cars specifically so I may be wrong, but a majority of cars with rear disc brakes use screw-in pistons.

 

Hope this helps.

The rear caliper pistons retract with the use of a hex screw in the back of the caliper. There's a little plug you take out, then you can retract the piston as long as the mechanism isn't stuck.
