Rotating the piston without removing the lever will probably damage the adjuster screw.
Once you've got the calipers ready to go back on, here's how you do the initial adjustment so you have a good pedal.
No and maybe.
Rotate the piston w/ GM tool is hard. You need to apply pressure and turning in the piston. Lever is on. Using generic tools need to remove iron part of caliper and not a good idea.
Pushing in only then need to remove lever and nut so screw can move. Carefully pry/squeeze the piston back. Should move fairly easy if screw isn't binding.
That and other Adjustments method are mostly useless. If you need to manually adjust then very likely the piston is bad and you will have problem w/ rear brakes.
Dr. Ian Malcolm: Yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should.
