I need to change my rear brake pads on my '96 3.2 TL for the 3rd time in 240,000 miles.
The first time I completely removed the calipers from the vehicle and then forced the caliper piston back in using a hammer
. I did this because I didn't know what I was doing and because the odd shape of the caliper made using a C-Clamp impossible.
The 2nd time I just replaced the calipers with rebuilt parts - so I did not need to reset the brake piston.
Now I want to do it right, but I need help from someone with experience on a 1st gen 3.2 TL. Once I have the rear caliper removed from the mount bracket and the pad shims and brake pads have been removed, how do I reset the brake piston?
NOTE: I have the full service manuals, but could not find instructions in section 19-17 Rear Brake Pads Inspection and Replacement.
