hi its rare the pads stick to the rotor but obviously this one was welded metal to metal so if the other sides not down to the metal you won,t have the same problem now getting the piston back into the caliper if you don,t have the tool its going to be fiddling but you need to get some pressure on the piston as to shove it back in not to much as you have stated it has to be screwed back in once a pressure has been applied [could try using you c-clamp ] then the slots in the piston insert something that will turn the piston it will locate and start to screw back your going to need pateince as it is fiddling with the correct tool you may need a few attemps but the other side should not be as bad as the piston has not gone past the point of return take your time and check for leaks when you have them all assembled yates210456

Does the caliper move around if you try to lever it away from the disc? Are all the bolts definitely removed? Often it is just that the pads needs to be pushed back a bit so they will clear the lip on the disc. Try putting a screwdriver on lever bar between the inner pad and the disc and pushing the brake piston back a bit, that may free it up to clear the lip. Check that the caliper slides move freely when you get the caliper off, if not remove and clean / regrease them.

yep, this is what u do. i read that this controls hand break and you need to completely loosen that using hex (3mm) key. BUT, when u tighten it back up, u need to unscrew it about 1/8th, VERY important, or ur pads will be rubbing way too much against the rotor. I actually had to do about 1/2 the turn to make the wheel spin w/out too much pressure.

on the rear calipers there is a 14m bolt on the back of the caliper beside the parking brake braket.
remove bolt on the inside there is a hex screw. as you turn it the piston gose in or out.
check calipers for damage.
