BRAKES.
I have a 95 SC and I can't get the rear caliper to go back so I can put the new pads on. I've got the C Clamp on and keep trying to wind it back but it won't go

Rotate caliber piston clockwise with pressure applied. Should get tool from local parts shop to accomplish. Can get away without it, but makes life easier.

Like TBSCoupe says, the rear caliper pistons must be rotated in because of the parking brakes.

Rent the tool from a local parts store or buy it for about $10. Also hook up a hose to the bleeder and open the bleeder. It is much easier to turnthe pistons back in if the bleeder is open.

I fought with the C-clamp on my rear calipers for about an hour, then ran out of daylight and threw the new pads in my trunk, where they have sat ever since. Now I have new hope, I figured it would be something to do with the E-brake release. Thanks for posting that question TBirdBrian95.
Thanks,

Well I went and bought the tool at Advance Auto it was 10.00. But it only took me like 30 min to do both sides. Thanks for the help guys
