Q: how to close the caliper so the pads will fit back over the rotor on 2006 Hyundai Tiburon

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
tried a clamp and pliers but it will not press in. How does it close in so the new pads will fit back over the rotor.

I guess you are working on the rear brakes, which requires a special tool to set the pistons. It's a "press and turn" tool, you can buy it at most parts store. The alignment of the pistons are also important. Better to get a repair manual and follow the instructions.
