Rear Brake Piston clockwise or anti clockwise

Recommended Posts

Just about to replace rear pads and discs on my 2009 1.4vvti auris, anyone know which way the caliper pistons have to be screwed back?

If you do your research you will find most people agree that the nearside (UK car) is clockwise but differing views re the offside. I can say definitely that on my 2011 Auris hybrid that the offside had to be turned clockwise as well.

I found it took a fair bit of pressure and was best done with the right tool


If you try to do it without this; then watch what you're doing as you can accidently screw the piston out of the calliper if you're uncertain which way to turn.
