1997 Ford Explorer Automatic
I was trying to change the rear brakes on a 97 Explorer and ran into a problem. I got the old brakes off without too much of a problem, but I can not get the new ones on. I can not get the cylender/piston that compresses the pads to stop the vehicle to retreat at all. I had 0 luck with a C-Clamp. I read somewhere that you need a special tool and that the piston must be screwed back, so I went to Autozone and borrowed the tool. However there are no notches on the piston for the bumps on the tool to fit into like the people at the parts store said there would be (or needed to be for the tool to work). Any help here? Thanks.
have the same problem?
