This looks like instructions to install a new caliper. I am just changing brakes. I took out the old set of pads, and am trying to compress the piston using a c-clamp. I did not do anything with the parking brake aside from make sure it was off. I even tried to bleed the piston while I was trying to compress itDo I need to do anything with the parking brake to be able to compress the piston?
You need the special tool as stated in the instructions. 8807-2 is the part number.
