Re: rear caliper

with the right tool it's easy - remember you always have to turn the piston in the front direction of the car, so the left one anti-clockwise, the right one clockwise....

Re: rear caliper

The rear calipers have to be wound in, in the driection of the wheel moves forward. You cant use a G clamp you need 2 different tools for the rear wheels as they move in different directions.
