Did this video help you?

hycron1234: The more you know! :)

Jasonzxzx: What if the caliper is too popped out and you can't fit either of the tools in there? What can I do then?

svaz2006: Thanks for pointing out the caliper kit - borrowed one from O'Reilly's - that saved me a ton of time and aggravation!

Joe Briggs: Did you crack the bleeder?

Julia Riutzel: Excellent video!! Thank you very much for spot on, to the point, and intelligent explanation.

Bruce L.: The cubes are handy when they have four places to engage but otherwise I just end up slipping and skinning knuckles. I have one of those kits on my Amazon wish list but the wife warned me not to be buying anything for myself before Christmas.
Thanks for the video.

Dan Gabor: This is why a brake job $400.00. Worth every penny and I don't have to mess with them. Drop off the car and pick it up.

gebwv84: once piston is twisted back in, do I need to leave it there on reinstal with the new pads ?

DTR RTD: It sounds awfully complicated from your description on using the special tool, but the 10 seconds it actually takes to select the disk adapter and put it on the caliper is well worth it, especially when you run across a piston that needs more than fingertip pressure to rotate and retract. The cube will probably work in most cases, but when you encounter a caliper that's not as cooperative, the specialized tool is gold.

Gersberms: I used water pump pliers, is that bad? It was very easy to turn the pistons so it seemed an alright way to get it done.

michael mason: Uuyy

Vertis Brown: This video was extremely helpful i was trying to C clamp it in for like an hour straight with a hammer and everything 🤦🏾‍♂️

iTheGeek: Nice Spanish bro. Not trying to be sarcastic. You had absolutely no accent when you said "dedos". It really surprised me 😂

Drandolph4570: my passenger side was reverse thread 08 ford Taurus x

Full Retard Custom Guns: just spent half a day working on sons 08 mustang. actually went back to auto zone and bought new caliper, thinking old one had siezed. was using c clamp like I have for years, finally Googled it and now feel like a complete tool. Not so much like a "special tool" but just a tool. note to self, never assume, Google that crap.

isit1984yet: You just helped me figure out a big mystery. I had no idea that some hydraulic calipers need to be turned in like that. I've been using a c-clamp and it wasn't budging. Thank you.

Jorge A Benítez: It's necessary to open the break fluid reservoir??

shaun dunn: Thank you thank you. Your video was most helpful. I went from old car to newer vehicle and let's just say the old C clamp High School auto shop method I was taught is obsolete. I struggled to locate tool,but was unsuccessful especially on a sunday, anyway I ended up spreading a pair of needle nose plyers fitting the tip in slots and turn. ta da! It worked. Thanks again.

Arthur Shongo: Yeah. i watch. the video. how. to put rear. brake. on my g6. it was fun. two hours. later. shoot. i save. let money. to the job. thanks. YouTube.
