For the rear you need to turn the piston as you crank with the C clamp. It's a lot easier with the right tool. Any good parts store has the tool.Tell us where were they?
There you go ...One has to be creative :doh:I just used a pair of sturdy needle nose pliers to get int the groves and twist, no pressure needed.
Or worse..... broke them!!!Wow, i'm glad i read this...I just did my front brakes two weeks ago and plan on hitting the rears this weekend and I probably would have screamed obscenities throughout the neighborhood trying to do it without knowing to turn the piston!!
You can also open up a bottle of beer with your teeth.I used a bar clamp (Wood Clamp) and it worked perfect.

I know what your saying but i recommend you use the tool designed for it to prevent maring the piston or damaging anything.
Its not like its expensive or anything.
