    is there an special move to "reset" the pistons in the rear brakes when changing pads on a -00 X, or is it just to push it straight in? Some cars i'v worked with you have to push and turn the piston at the same time.

    According to my haynes manual it says that you just squeeze them using the old pads. So a straight push is ok.
