I've done it and hated every minute of it.
Get a quality brake piston rotator tool. The Autozone 5 sided cube is no good.
you will have to spin the piston back about 4-5 turns until it fully retracts.
The expanding/ 500lb pressure clamps do no good b/c the brake is like a hydraulic screw. You can't compress this type of brake.
Starting the rotation of the piston back will require two people
1 to hold the tool and ratchet on the piston, the other to turn the ratchet.

rate as fixya if this is what you need. Thanks
Remove the brake pads by pushing inward and rotating the pad up.
Retract the caliper piston (2196) into the rear disc brake caliper.

are you using the right tools? Id call you local auto parts store to make sure the set your using is correct, if it is the right set, id be asking how far out the piston is, on these newer vehicals, if you screw them out to far, almost to the point of being removed, they will not go back in or at least are very tricky to do

With a pair of needle nose pliers turn the pistons clockwise to set them back to base position. The V shape groves are not too deep on the pistons, so make sure you have gloves on, in case of the pliers slip out while turning it.
