On cars with 4 wheel disc brakes the rear calipers are what they call racheting.The pison needs to be turned clockwise at the same time you are pushing in.This mechanisum is for the E brake system.They make special tools for doing this that you can pick up at your local parts store.

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.

you need a special tool avalable at most parts stores. its a disc brake piston turning tool. you have to rotate piston clockwise while pushing in on piston. you can fabricate something that enguages the slots and push and turn till all the way in.make sure to note position of slots and put them in same place as was before or the pin on the pads wont enguage the slot
