Okay, then you have what you need. Just take the drum off of the other side and use it as a reference. You are going to have a hard time trying to find a diagram. The Hayes and others are just general pictures and not necessarily what is on your specific vehicle. I do not have that particular diagram myself.
Please remember to rate this fix.

there is a kit you can lease from auto zone to insert into the caliper that will turn the piston and compress at the same time its different than the old style where you could use a c-clamp to do it ,,,,,it has to be turned in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.........the kit will cost 55.00 roughly but you get your money back when you return it do not i repeat do not get the little square block with pegs on it from the zone or advanced auto it won't work its **** and a waste of time.

I had the same issue when I replaced mine. I can't say it is the 100% correct solution but it did work for me. Or course there is a specialty tool for the job, but I used a needle nose pliers and got in the two dimples on the piston face. You have to then push quite hard and screw it in clockwise. One of them I had to back out and in but it did work in the end. The fact they are so hard to do is probably related to the how soon my rear brakes went out (about 40K miles). Hopefully you got it, otherwise good luck. I just had to keep messing with it and it eventually came in. Also, I think if you fully extended the piston and wore the pads to metal that may also play a role in the difficulty getting the piston re-set. Once you get it going, it will pull right in as you turn it clockwise.

If you have done the front, the back should be the same, if you have all wheel disc brakes. If you have drum brakes, then it's a bit different, but not too hard. Let me know if you have Drum Brakes in the back. When it comes to drum brakes, it's best to use a book with written and visual directions. I promise it's not as hard as it looks. Once you've done one side you'll see how less complicated it really is, compared to how it looks. If you can, purchase a book ( I prefer a CHILTONS) as it is more descriptive in directions. If you cannot, let me know and I will do my best to walk you through it. I will also look online and give you the URL.
