Having problems with your 2007 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5 Sedan ?

Left rear brake caliper on a 4 wheel disc has stuck and wore the pads down to the metal. I am not able to reseat the piston into the bore. I have tried rotating the piston cw and ccw with no luck. I have ordered a new caliper and would like to know if there are any hints on easy install. 2007 vw Jetta 2.5

Answers :

Unfortunately, you need a 'cylinder rewind tool.
That's what made it impossible to compress.
It's basically a 'vice', but it turns, and thus screws the cylinder in.
It's a specialised tool.
