Cant seem to figure out the rear brakes on my 04 gt. went to change pads and it seemed to be a lot harder than i thought. could not get the piston to go in and could not get the pads to stay in place? so just put the old ones back on for now. thanks

you have to twist them in. You can't just push them straight in.

If you cant get it with vice grips or needle nose(I know mine were not going) there is a caliphar tool you can get that will do it. Very easy to use, Im sure you can rent them from autozone/checkers also.

Usually they are free but require a deposit
