Did this video help you?

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.

ddd228: That is the correct tool to use.TIP: Spray a little silicone behind the piston seal to make it easier to turn.Bungee cord the caliper to something,first!On some cars you may use the caliper pin to hold in into the adapter,backwards. Caution: On SOME Ford rear cable-actuated calipers it's a &*$$@! LEFT hand thread.Mazda has the best design: There is an allen bolt on the back side that just screws in.It's patented.

ONCESAVED ALWAYS SAVED: THANKS LIKED IT WISHED I WOULD HAVE BOUGHT 6 SIDED INTEAD OF KIT BUT ONLY PAID 16 BUCKS FOR 21 PC SET,LOL CANT COMPLAIN BUT NOW I KNOW WHY IT HAS TO BE COMPRESSED LIK THAT,AS YOU SAID IT EMERGENCY BRAKE AS WELL AS STANDARD COULDNT FIND ANSWERE ON NET SO THANKS. I JUST LIKE TO KNOW WHY A THING IS THE WAY IT IS.WAS GOING TO WELD A 2 PRONG GHETTO TOOL TO TURN IT IN BUT WAS AFRAID THERE WAS SOMETHING I WOULD BREAK WISHED NOW ID JUST HAD MADE ME A TOOL WOULD HAVE BEEN FREE,ONLY ONE SIDED OH,LOL

Blair Guinea: Good job Brian, ya vids are always so informative. thanks

Maria Perez: Thank you so much , i would of never known it, that the piston turns back in , to open so that you can put the new pads on 

Bchara sarkis: nice video

tyrell stroman: That's peace thanks for my daily lesson

Edvan perez: how do you know if you have the spiral piston

Will Snicks: Where do you get the 6 sided Die? I have never heard of this! Thanks in advance...

Kevin Parks: I had no problem changing mine with a c clamp and a pair of channel locks changed brake pads on both sides rear in like 30 minutes

Lou Fazio: Thanks bud. I never remember that, but now I will. I think there used too be different types. The universal cube is just fine for the price. The more developed sets provide pressure and stability with the backing plate -that is not for pressing the piston in by no means. Anyway, thanks for focusing on the part that everybody gets hung up on!

Nelson Mcfarland: Thank you for the help. I wish I watched this video before attempting my back brakes. You saved me

Benjamin Wert: This was very helpful. The compressor for the caliper was only $8... It only took 1 hr for both front brakes. FYI You don't need the dice for the front for anybody whose doing those.

Scoyy Horning: Thanks for the video's.

o shook x: Hey I've been having trouble with one on a 2006 Ford 500 I can't get it to compress. it's the rear left caliber I turn it clockwise and it spends but doesn't compress I push in as hard as I can and nothing but when I turn it CCW it will come out no problem. do I need to unscrew the bleeder maybe or do you think it is seized? I'm not sure.

giggleherz: Thanks for the video brother, up until I saw this I had no idea how the rear disc emerge worked. My 2011 journey has had a problem with the rear breaks seizing while driving. Now I am a bit nervous to try these myself.

AJ's youtube: I just replaced the rear brake pads on a VW Jetta and had to buy this rotator tool after my F-clamp procedure failed and I had to learn about the rotator-type calipers. I bought the tool at Harbor Freight and it worked perfectly. However, it came with a left-threaded and a right-threaded center screw. Do you know which cars have a left-threaded caliper, and if there is a way to tell which type it is from looking at it? The Jetta appeared to have both calipers right-threaded. (At least I got the caliper piston to retract on either side with the right threaded screw tool). Thx.

Zack Zander: Hey great video. I have a MAC spiral piston kit. Do you know which way to turn it on a 04-08 F-150 caliper?

deftoner: wow. awesome tip! THANKS
