SOURCE: Rear Brake Caliper
Most auto parts stores have a little cube that fits on a 3/8 ratchet wrench. use this cube to screw in your caliper. it has various nibs on it to fit a number of brake calipers. costs about 10 bucks. screw it in clockwise until its almost flush to the caliper housing...if you screw it in too far...the boot will pop over the piston and you will have a bigger mess. sometimes a screwdriver can be used to turn it but i prefer not to bleed. lastly make sure the grooves on the brake caliper piston is horizontal as to allow the caliper to slip over any "Nibs" on the new pads that are for alignment purposes.

Use a caliper wind back tool which rotates the piston at the same time as pushing it back. Release the bleed screw to assist the wind back. If you use a brake hose clamp on the brake hose this will reduce the need to bleed the system.
