Your A8 and new shape A6s with electric parking brakes require an electric input to the vehicle to tell it to wind back the pistons/pads. Main dealers have this on their diagnostic equipment. You can also purchase after market tools that just do this operation, heres an example
I have only ever used a main dealer machine so im not sure how good an after market one will be. Im not aware of anyway of doing the job without an electrical input to wind back the pads, the motors are very powerful so I wouldnt reccommend trying it manually. Hope this helps.

If it's like the 2003 The left-hand brake caliper piston retracts counter clockwise and the right-hand retracts clockwise.

It depends what type of Caliper Piston it is, if it has two grooves in it that criss cross like a X, those pistons have to be turned clockwise with a special tool or you can use a small screwdriver or I use the complete side of a small Vise grip that will fit inside the groove to turn the piston clockwise until it fully retracts into the caliper. The other type of Piston that has no special marks, you can use a C-Clamp and just put it on the Piston and tighten the clamp until the Piston fully retracts back into the caliper.
