How to change rear brakes on a 1997 mercury sable front brakes were very easy to ease the pressure on the caliper, but the rear brakes have the srping assembly for the emergency brakes. I am having a problem releasing the pressure with the bleeded valve open and releasing the pressure so I can fit the caliper over the new brake pads

Replace caliper with old brake pads put 1 bolt in place to hold together while taking a large screwdriver and prying caliper piston so that it compresses piston & block wedge to rear of bracket it should make enough room to install on new brake pads, the other way is to use a large c clamp put 1/4 pice of wood in between c clamp and caliper so you don't damage or Mar the caliper also check YouTube.
