I'm working on my 2014 fusion Titanium AWD
I accidently overextended the brake caliper piston while replacing the brake pads. And now I can't get it retracted, even with a C clamp. I had already replaced the pads on the DR side and everything went just as planed. The cylinder turned easily with just a socket on the driver end. I could turn it with just the socket and NO socket wrench.
On the Pass side, I unhooked the electric connection to the motor that extends the pads and removed the motor, just like on the other side. The Pass side was not as clean as the DR side was, at first glance. I put a socket on the driving end and it was tight, and had to use the socket wrench. It was un-expectedly tight to turn, so being a dumb ars, I turned it the other way. It went easier, but was the wrong way and over-extended it.
Is it trashed?? Now the screw will spin and spin... and even with a C clamp I can't compress the piston. It stuck with about an inch to go to be fully retracted.
Thanks all, in advance. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hi Dlee and welcome to the Ford Fusion Club. We are moving this thread about repairing your brake caliper to the Ford Fusion "Suspension and Brakes" sub-forum, where it will hopefully receive more appropriate viewing and help from other Ford Fusion Club members.

On a related note: There is a "Service Mode" which must be enabled before working on the brake system. It is explained in the Onwers Manual. Did you enable the Service Mode before you worked on the brakes?

Good luck.

Thanks for your help. I'm new to this site and having a problem finding the correct area to place this posting.
Hi Dlee. All is well and no worries.

I also added information to my previous reply about needing to enable "Service Mode" before doing brake work. Not sure if you saw it?

Good luck.
