Cant retract rear caliper pistons on '95 A6 - why screw?

Not to add insult to injury, but for a $35. or $40. tool kit (which works on
TONS of cars), 2 calipers are needed.

Once you use the right tool for the job (and a LOT of right tools are
required on an Audi), you'll discover how easy the job becomes.

Invest in a caliper tool kit.  They're cheap and work on a lot of different
vehicles, not just VAG products.
