I know about the tool.
But the 2008 has a electronic sensor that seams to prevent the piston from going in. The dealer said the do it by computer.
Is there a way to by-pass?
I don't want to damage the caliper by forcing the piston.
I tried disconecting the electrical line, but the piston came out further.
I havent worked on that new of one yet.....But according to the repair manuals I'm looking at it there doesnt seem to be much to it.....There is a special too that is used to press in the piston but you should be able to do that with a C-clamp, here is a picture. Let me know if you have questions or if you would like me to opt-out so another expert to help that is fine.....But I dont see any problems with using a C-clamp.

Are you sure the piston or the electrical sensor won't be damaged?
I believe there should be a way to by-pass the sensor then the piston can be rotated in.
Wrong, the rear caliper has a sensor not the pad.
I need someone who has done it.
Can you get them on-line or ask?
Otherwise, I can't get my wheel back on the car!
I have a fiend with a scaner.
Once I hook it up, what do I need to do to release the piston?
