Ford Focus how to replace rear brake pads on a 2006 ford focus

This answer was rated:

how to replace rear brake pads on a 2006 ford focus? How to wind piston on the thread, having trouble winding it on?

Hello I will help you with your question,


The rear caliper pistons require a tool that puts a little pressure on the piston as you turn it in to allow it to screw in. It is possible for the piston to be out far enough that the caliper will need to be replaced but with the correct tool you should be able to turn 99% in unless the caliper has been damaged

what is the special tool called. how far do u turn the piston back to put in a new set of brake pads.

The special tool is a brake piston caliper turn in tool and in the procedure I posted above is a part number 206-010 with adapter 206-026.


Here is a link to a site that carries this tool but you should be able to find a less expensive version of the turn in tool at an autoparts shop near you

The important feature you need is the portion of the tool that pushes against the outside of the caliper to put pressure on the piston as you turn the pistion to screw it in.
