Did this video help you?

anti0918: I found that needle nose vice grips fit perfectly on the Honda rear calipers. Plus you can adjust them wide to increase the twisting torque.

Gary Farris: You can use Channel Locks also. Turn while pushing down at the same time...say it with me.. turn and push down. Very good now carry on.

jeffrey r: do you need to crack open the bleeder valve before you collapse the rear piston?

Kevin Brunetto: This video was extremely helpful especially about the Autozone free rental tool. Thanks a bunch!

David U: Thank you for this video. Would love five mins alone with the asshole from Ford who designed this set up

hamscanner: I have seen the six sided dice things, I was wonder what they where for, thanks for the education

Drew Conlow: Awesome, great video!! You saved me a lot of time!!!!

Brian Hambleton: Where do I get such a "six sided die"? I am unfamiliar with those. Thanks.

raoul wouters: before you thread the piston to spray the dust cover with wd40. then thread the easier and can not tear the dust cover ;)

YTKeeps AskingforName: I have one of those six sided dice things, good thing I was wondering why it seems like you have to push and turn at the same time, thanks for the video.

Ethel Mann: awesome thanks

gilberto lopez: You have save me a lot of work guessing what to do, thank you very much i couldnt have done the job with out your help.

Charlie Sullivan: This is exactly what I've been looking for for at least 2 hours. Thank you for being straight to the point. Amazing video. Can't thank you enough

Michael Murphy: Great video i just purchased the kit instead of the block i have a lot of family members cars to do this was very informative.GOD BLESS YOU BROTHER 

John Brockie: straight out & smart approachs are the best for repetitive maintainance tasks

Robert Nichols: Thanks a lot for the video. I've done several types of vehicles but this is my first (2004 Ford Freestar) with this type of break system. It saved me a lot of time and a big headache. I appreciate the time you took to make this video. Have a good one and God bless

Rick in Oakville: Thank you, very straight to the point!

Jonathon Askins: Informative as always

Olivier Pirard: Thank you Brian. It is an helpfull vid. Tons of "Thumbs Up". I have to do the job on a Bendix brake system. 

Nathaniel Amero: i have a ford freestarr and the caliper only has 2 slots ,my question is will the tools that u just used in this video work...i thank you in advance for any info

ruben1nebur: Nice video exactly what I've been looking for online for about 2 hrs now!!! Thanks!!! 

MrPapa Georgio: Thanks brochacho.

frankie214398: Thanks man u know ur stuff it help a lot

bambieatfood: 1:38 make sure you put some lubricant on the side (between the piston and rubber boot) before resetting that piston. put just a enough. or else you gonna end up your rubber boot just like in that video.

10Tenbears1: thank you

TheJdong0: Thanks for the info, Brian. You covered everything I was clueless on - going from a Subaru to a Hyundai I was wondering why I needed to turn in the piston and why there was no shoe for the parking brake. From what I gather the hydraulic parking brake was an easier design but the drum in hat lets you keep the e-brake even if you lose your hydraulic braking system.

kenman1717: those cubes are kind of a pain, cause you have to keep pressure on them so they don't slip, but i have that kit from MAC and it works really good except you have to use a wrench on it also and keep turning the nut the opposite way so the plate stays tight against the caliper to keep the pressure, which is also a big pain. but what is nice about my kit, all the spanner discs have a 1/2 square drive which the tool has, but you can also use an extinsion and socket like the cube.

briansmobile1: You're welcome!

qlosedqasket: nice work ma!

estrelladelnorte1308: dados brian not dedos :)

poshmerkin: Great video!! I would just add though that on my Vauxhall Astra rear brakes I had to remove the calipers to my bench vice in order to get sufficient pressure on the piston to push it back while rotating it with the dice tool. Of course I had to bleed the brakes afterwards. I'm posting this in case it helps anyone else with similar problems.

briansmobile1: You're welcome- ya it's better on some models than others.

Ssactoralph: Does it matter which way you turn the piston. Is the bore of caliper threaded? Could you explain more the theory of operation on this type of caliper. I have a 2004 mustang that needs brakes and also a 1998 for Taurus. Thanks for the help. I enjoy you videos! Ralph

Jean Hardy: Thanks, My husband was going crazy as to how to do this. He is on his way to get one of the die you showed to remove it. Yeah!!!!!

jartmanjr: Does the piston spin easier if you open the bleeder valve? What about opening the bleeder and clamping off the main line so no air gets in? Does either one make it easier to spin? Thanks good video.

pisto29: I have a 98 mustang gt. my brakes were gone on the rear drivers side when i was changeing the pads the caliper was stukk( i thought) sooooo.... I hammerd it down. Put it together but now my brakes smoke! Did i destroy the caliper? Did i have to turn it?

FixFalcon: I wish I would have seen this video last summer when I did my brakes. Looks so much easier than the auto zone loan kit I used that took forever.

poshmerkin: Thanks for your concern. It wasn't THAT hard - it was just that on the Vauxhall Astra the hydraulic hose to the caliper was not long enough to be able to rest the caliper against something solid to push against. Watching the video again, the caliper was hard against something on the suapension when he was turning the piston back. It's my own car, and the brakes are working perfectly on all four wheels (I did all four).

briansmobile1: Welcome!

briansmobile1: welcome

briansmobile1: You're welcome : )

briansmobile1: You're welcome Daniel!

chad h: Thanks for posting!

samrosario1060: P.S. Do I need to do anything special to the caliper piston before I mount it-- like perhaps screw it in completely and out again or perhaps force it out with air first and then screw it in?

briansmobile1: YOU'RE WELCOME!!! I'M GLAD I COULD HELP YOU MAKE YOUR CAR SAFER!!!

RunPoo1: Very imformative. I have to check mine, its making a bird noise..LOL

whistle54: Thank you for this video. My hubby decided to finally fix my breaks......when he got to this part of the job he was stumped. He told me to have it towed to a shop...that's when I found your video. The rest is history! Thank you again :-)

vala maile: iv had that tool in my glovebox so long i forgotten what it was for you totally helped

Bernie Trumblak: My father and I are replacing the rear breaks on my 06 Ford Fusion. This was an excellent video to help us.. Thank you for the information. It was a HUGE Help

T Rock: The piston die set shown is an entry level set, the master kit does both ways, some have a reverse piston thread, fyi. A lot of times the outer dust boot sticks to the piston while it's being turned inward, lifting it out of and back into the piston boot groove beforehand greatly reduces turning resistance and damage to the outer boot.
