Did this video help you?

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 I went from old car to newer vehicle and let's just say the old C clamp High School auto shop method I was taught is obsolete.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.

Tim Cunningham: The only video that suggested the cube. Thanks

Mike Tice: Thanks

Manny Decastro: Thanks for posting. Doing a job now and didn't know how to compress....

bob burt: Thanks. I had never seen a spiral piston. would have gone nuts w/o This video. I used a pair of pliers to turn the piston. teeth were the same width as notches. worked great.

Alexei Scherbakov: can you use old brake pad and c clamp to compress and turn the piston?

Oldman inthewoods: Good video for the unknowing DIYer, but,i wouldn't recommend BLOW ZONE to anyone for anything. I bought the cube(not at AZ) to change the back brakes on a 99 Taurus(8 yrs ago)(cleaned the piston and sprayed it with silicone) it didn't work on that car, so i took a pair of needle nose pliers and turned it right in.

Max love: Dude grow some hair you look like a pickle

Matthew Magee: Thank you so much. I was looking for help on getting the caliper off, after seeing this, i'll back off for the day. Much appreciated.
