I have no experience of your make of car but most cars are similar in this respect.
The piston has a very fine thread inside the calliper and has to be screwed back in,just as if it were a big bolt.
You can buy a special tool for doing this but you may also get away with doing it with a large pair of long nosed pliers.....although you will find it a little awkward.
Take a look at the face of the piston....you will see two "V" shaped grooves opposite one another....use these grooves to twist the piston back into the bore......it takes a while because the thread is quite fine......the job is much easier with the proper tool.
If you choose to buy the proper tool, simply ask for a rear brake calliper piston tool.

You need a special tool for rear pads. The pistons have to be turned in, there is either slots or holes in the piston for the tool to fit in, then just turn the piston clockwise and push a little at the same time.
Just turn them in far enough for the new pads to slide over the rotor.
