Question about 2007 Toyota Camry
I would think as cheap as remanufactured calipers have become, it would be easier to just change out the caliper. I really do not think you can do it with the piston in place.

SOURCE: Changing front brake pads
You shouldn't need to remove the calipers altogether just to replace the pads. You have remove the split pins or retaining springs on the old pads, then prize back the caliper pistons enough to remove them. Then push the pistons back some more enough to get the new pads in. Then reassemble and test.

If you have a frozen caliper, (rusty piston stuck inside calipers cylinder), then you have to options:
Replace the caliper piston and sea,l with a new one, or replace all thing i.e, the caliper. Hope will help.

remove caliper, push disc all way home, put wheel nut on to hold home, retry fitting them the disc may be slightly scued. If no go try diffrent brand of pad I had same prob with a diffrent car last week & diffrent brand pad was 2mm thiner. If can't exchange pads get piece of emery paper on flat surface & sand away top part of pad material in round motions both ways till they fit. :-)
