Hi,

Apologies as this question may have already been asked. I am new and searched through the forums for this and am not sure if there is a special tool to rest my Car's Caliper/Piston after a brake change.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Huy

Do you mean how do you push the piston back in when you change the pads? If so the service instructions say to use a Brake Caliper Piston Compressor 07AAESEPA101. Since it doesn't appear that you have to rotate the pistons back in like some vehicles, you could just use a C-clamp and the old pad to push against.

If you are asking if there is a reset of some sort once the pads have been changed, I don't believe there is other than bedding the brakes in.

Have you ever changed a cars brakes? You always need a caliper tool to push the piston back in after new brakes. You can typically rent it for free from autozone if you purchase the pads from them. A c-clamp will sometimes work as well or just remove the pressure from the lines and you can push it back easily but you may need to bleed the brakes afterwards.
