Do you need a special tool to push back the caliper piston on the rear of the 16 sorento? Im doing my girls brakes tonight and just looking to know if i need to borrow that tool.

Yeah. Unless you have a large set of channel locks, the little piston tool is needed. You can get them at Walmart now for under $10.

So the piston screws in correct? I always use a c clamp or big channel locks to push piston in but i know some cars screw in so just to clarify it does in fact screw in not push right?

No screw to push back piston and not need special tool because parking brake is separated.
