I am replacing my Lincoln LS 2004 rear brake, and borrowed Disc Brake Caliper Tool Set from Autozon, but the Piston cannot be pushed back.
Can someone tell me the correct way to push the piston back?

Thanks you help in advance.

The rear caliper pistons have to be screwed back in clockwise while applying pressure. This tool set will do it.

Note that when you are done, the piston has to be left turned to the correct orientation to mate with the back of the brake pad.

Thanks Joegr. It worked by screwing back in clockwise while applying pressure. The rear brake pads were changed.
