I cannot compress the rear brake caliper piston to install new pa

In the back the caliper pistons actually have to be turned... you can either do it with something that can fit in the two v-shaped notches, or you can buy a tool from Autozone, etc. that will fit on a 3/8" drive ratchet to turn the piston back in.

I did this myself for the first time about 4 weeks ago. Confused me until I asked an Autozone employee.
