Use a c clamp. I am assuming you are changing the brakes. If its the rear caliper you might need a special tool

Low brake fluid

  1. may be a leak if so you should see evidence around where the car is parked. it may also be normal
wear because as the brake pads wear the caliper will have to open farther to engage the pad which
causes the fluid in the master cylinder to drop

How do you press the brake caliper piston back on 2008

First, take a look at the piston, if it's flat or cup shaped, put an old pad at the piston and use channel locks to squeeze it back in, opening the tool wide to get it to catch the back of the caliper.
If....the piston has what looks like an "X" or cut outs, this is for a tool that spins the piston in with a special tool. (Subaru's and some other cars use this)
After you are all done and pump up the brakes, re-check the brake fluid level.

Use a C-Clamp, tighten down on the caliper and pistion at a moderate to slow speed. I had a similar problem with my 300ZX brakes not wanting to retract all the way, come to find out, the piston had come out far enough to let dirt in , and was locking up the pistion. I had to blow the piston out of the caliper, wash the pistion and caliper well, thouroughly with brake fluid, and the put the piston back in. If you are not comfy with the idea of doing that, you may have to replace that caliper.
