Question about 1993 Honda Accord
You need a special tool for that. On the back pistons, they have to be turned in, not compressed like the front do, and just turn them in far enough to get the new pads on. Also tourqe the wheel lugs down to the spec's for that car, or the rotors will warp later on down the road.

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.

The rear calaper pistons don't press in. You need to take a large pair of chanel lock pliers and twist them (screw them in).The pistions have indentions in them that the dows on the pads have to line up with or the pads won't seat flush against the calaper.

you will need a special tool which you can buy at your local auto parts store that is just for that. It is square in shape and of course has six sides to it use with a 3/8's drive ratchet. This tool is used to turn your piston's in. There are not pushed like your front.

As far as I know, most front disc brake setups have pistons that are pressed back into the cylinders using a C-clamp or something similar.
However, not all rear disc systems are like this. There are some that require that the rear pistons be screwed back into the cylinder bores. These pinstons usually have some kind of indentations on the front where special tools fit and help move them back into the cylinder.
Your Hyundai may have this kind of setup.

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.
