Can anyone point me in the direction of where to get the tool that screws the piston in the rear brake caliper.

I know all you have to do is push and twist on it, but i just want the proper tool so i don't damage all the paint!

Regards Stephen!

or you can use a pair of long nose pliers that you push in to the slot on the caliper piston and apply pressure whislt turning

and they will wind back - if your concerned over the paint use a large towel or rag to protect the caliper

For similar questions, I usually refer to expert articles. Even for example, when I needed a hybrid table for sanding a tree and I was not experienced, I found a good resource - https://thecozyholic.com/best-hybrid-table-saw and there were about 10 models with different descriptions and expert opinions. This helped me to choose my model that suits my requirements. I'm sure you can also find tips on any tools that interest you.
