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 I went from old car to newer vehicle and let's just say the old C clamp High School auto shop method I was taught is obsolete.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.
ddd228/Dave in Seattle.: 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.
JESUS SAVES: 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
