Question about 2004 Buick LeSabre
On some vehicles with rear disk brakes the piston also is self adjusting to keep the pads close to the rotors. This piston screws in to back it off. Turn the piston counter clockwise to back it off.

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 piston must be rotated as it is pushed into the caliper. There is a special tool for this that is sold at just about all parts houses. The tool looks like a small square with various pins for various applications that goes on the end of your 3/8 drive ratchet.
