None of the sizes fit for my base 2001 Ford Mustang; all were too close together to fit into the piston notches.

So there I was, with the car jacked up, unable to fit the caliper back onto the rotor. Some people claim they can do the job with nothing but a pair of needle-nose pliers, but I couldn't. I had to painstakingly alternate between turing the piston with a pair of heavy-duty pliers and pressing down with a C-clamp. This piston tool was supposed to prevent this kind of aggravation.

I was getting ready to replace the rear disk brakes on my 1998 Saturn SL2. You need to turn the piston in the caliper to get it to go back in. I heard you can use a pair of needle nose pliers, but this tool is so cheap, I decided to try it. It made the job much faster and easier. I really appreciated having this item.

I needed this for a late 70s GM rear disc application and none of the fittings worked for my calipers. This is not a universal fit-all application.

This tool gets a bad rap from Audi & VW owners, they say it won't work. They are wrong. In order to get this tool to work on the rear brake pistons of Audi & VW's please follow this simple how-to guide: One side of the cube has 4 prongs. Grind or file or cut off 2 diagonally opposite aka kitty-corner prongs to allow the cube to fit the vw rear brake piston.
Use with a 3/8" ratchet. It can be easier to fasten the rear caliper back onto the carrier without the rotor in place while using this tool. That way you get a little extra leverage.
Use as follows: engage the two prongs and turn the piston 180° clockwise. Remove the tool. Use a generic caliper tool or a c-clamp and push the piston in about 2mm. Keep alternating back and forth between the cube tool and the c-clamp until the piston is almost all the way in. If you are strong enough, you may not even need the c-clamp - just push with the cube tool as you turn. Instead of the cube, you can even use needle-nose pliers, but then you definitely need the c-clamp.

I got this to replace the rear pads and rotors on my 2003 Jaguar S-Type, and it did the job alright. The little nubs were starting to round off by the time I was finished with the second side, but for seven bucks its cheap enough to be a disposable tool. However, the other 4 sides might be handy for other vehicles, so I'm not about to throw it away! As a side note: to compress the rear cylinders on a Jag like mine, both sides of the car turn Clockwise. This is not one of those cars where you twist in reverse for the other side.

Just completed a rear brake job on a 2008 Honda Accord Coupe. This tool is a MUST, made the job of resetting the caliper so easy. Fits right on 3/8" drive ratchet. Offers 6 different "faces" to fit 6 different styles of brake setup. When I was done, simply store this in case with my socket set. I am sure I will find other ways to use this. Perfect DYI tool. Bottom line is the $10 price saved me from paying a shop $350+.

this is a tool to turn the rear caliper piston to retract it on cars that have cable parking brake with rear disks... notably a lot of Ford / Lincolns / Jaguar.

its a well made tool that has 6 different notch patterns to fit evey piston type I've ever run into... very very handy time saver

enjoy
