    I'm doing rear pads and rotors on a 2015 Fusion SE. I've put the brakes into maintenance mode per this video, which unlocked them, and I'm able to retract the pistons, but not fully enough for the new pads. At first I thought I had a defective caliper, but the same thing happened on the other side. I note that these have two indentations as if they're supposed to screw in, but according to everything I've read, that doesn't appear to be the case, and they won't turn anyway.

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the FFO!

    Not sure how the parking brake is actuated. And that might be an issue.
    The piston may not be fully retracted into the caliper. May need a little help.

    Looking at the picture it does not look like the piston is far enough inside the caliper

    Is the cap off of the master cylinder?

    Figured it out. When I put the brakes in maintenance mode, I had already removed the calipers from the rotors, so they pressed together more so than usual when I first turned the car on (I may also have inadvertently activated the EPB when I was trying to disable it). At any rate, because the pistons were so far out, when it put them in maintenance mode, they only retracted a certain amount. Going through a second maintenance cycle allowed me to push the pistons all the way in.
