REBUILDING CALIPER- CAN'T GET PISTON INTO BORE
1998 Saturn SL2 • 175,645 miles
I'm rebuilding the calipers on my 98 Saturn SL2 and am having a really hard time getting the piston back down into the bore. I even tried a large C-clamp but even that didn't work. I followed all the instructions; submerged then installed the rubber ring, put brake fluid all over the inside of the bore and on the piston but the piston just doesn't want to go in. Any help?

Like I said before I have never rebuilt a caliper I just looked up the repair data on the caliper and for over haul and it says to refer to the exploded view of the caliper. There are no specail tools listed to over haul it. The seals going to be a tight fit have you tried putting the seal on the piston and inserting the pistonand seal together?
