From left, a car window crank removal tool, pushes the clip outa the way so you can get the handle off. #2 is a brake caliper piston retracting tool. Engages the slots or holes in the piston face as you turn it with a 3/8 ratchet and extension. #3 is a drum brake adjuster tool, engages the star wheel on the adjuster through the adjustment slot in the backing plate. #4 is an eludium q36 explosive space demodulator. Maybe some kinda nutsert setting tool.

At this rate 9er is just about 1-1/2 Heines away from a complete 6er, with only the flux capacitor tool on the far right standin in the way sad smiley

Though that's a good guess GAK, but, wait for it, wait ...... ahhhhhhnh Oh and Johnny he was soooo close too monty

Here's a hint: the one on the far right is a specialty tool used on suspensions though the L-handle can be used with many common ring compressor tools also, that's not part of this ones functions totally

BTW, just as an addenum to what 9er said about #s 2 and 3 in the pic.

If you're workin on a car with all wheel disc brakes #2 is a real time saver when you get to the back brakes. While I usually just reach for a set of vise grip C clamps to compress the front calipers when installin new pads this won't do a thing on the rear calipers since they are typically controlled by both pressure from the hydraulic system to actuate the brakes and by cable to operate the parking/emergency brake section. The cable usually acts on a ratcheting action that will increasingly rotate the piston caliper outward to help accommodate for wear in the pads so when installing new pads the caliper must be screwed back in to allow you to install the new pads.

Though all manner of other tools can be used to get this done, nothin works as well or as easily as this lil $2-3 jewel will. It has different sized and shaped/spaced ears on each of the 6 faces of the tool to fit pretty much every variation of rear caliper out there and then once you've located the right side face for what you're workin on you just slip a 3/8" ratchet into the square drive hole on the opposing side and get down to business grinning

#3 is problee one of the oldest tools in my collection since it dates all the way back to about 1972. I always heard it called a brake spoon tool and can be really helpful in tryin to manually adjust a set of drum brake shoes. I have another one I also bought with this one in a set of the 2 wrenches that has a bent tip on one end like this one and a bent tapered point tip on the other end. I've never found the pointed tip to be of any use but the one shown was put to good use adjustin the brakes on car #1 in my collection, a 60 model VW Bug with the original 36hp MONSTER motor .... damn how I hated that anemic fucker (*horse*)

God damn it...#4 is a shock aborber shaft tool. The socket end holds the flats of the shock shaft while the black portion engages and loosens the locknut.
