Clio GT 106 Deisel rear brakes

Hi i was trying to change the rear pads on my clio Gt over the weekend as they are squeeling like hell and the garange didint want to know anything about it under warranty. I got to changing the pads and noticed that the piston wouldnt reset, not wanting to force it back i left it.

Does anybody know if i need a brake caliper tool for this and if so is it a standard caliper tool or a specialist one?

Also will i need to bleed the brakes as im reseting the piston?

Re: Clio GT 106 Deisel rear brakes

Are there slots in the piston? if I think you rotate it clockwise using a flat bar that fits through the slots make sure the fluid is not over full or as the piston goes back it will overflow, not 100% sure on this so be careful.

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.
