Make sure the parking brake cam is in the released position and then make
sure the brake bleeder valve is cracked open before you turn in the piston.
And yes, the proper tool makes is much much easier...

Subject: [V8] Rear Brakes

   I'm trying to change my rear brake pads.Can anybody tell me how to get
the calipers back in.
    I turned the driver's side clockwise and it went right in. When I tried
the right side it started to go in,but not far enough. It still turns but
doesn't go in any more. I'm turning it the right way,as it has moved in,but
I need it to go in another 1/2 inch.
    I've been pushing in as I turn it with a pair of water pump pliers. I
don't have the correct tool,but it's always worked this way for me.
 Any ideas?
