Question about 2005 Pontiac Montana SV6
I'm trying to change the front brake pads on my 2006 Pontiac Montana SV6 and I can't compress the caliper. Do I need to twist the caliper piston while squeezing it?
No that is only the older rear calipers on gm and others. the fronts do not have that style caliper and sound like the calipers are frozen and may be way your changing the pads. try opening the bleeder screw and then compressing them if they go then you need need brake hoses and if not you need calipers. god luck man

The calipers turn to retract, they do not compress. This is covered in a post for an 06 Montana about retracting calipers. See link.
Hope this helps someone.
