Question about 2004 Hyundai Tiburon
Release the handbrake adjuster so that the handbrake paws on the calipers are against their stops, the piston can then be screwed back into the caliper together with gentle pressure but don't force it back in. there is a special tool for doing this but you can inprovise using 'hook nose' pliers or a hand vice (mole grips) but you may find this difficult as sometimes the pistons can be quite tight. when you have changed the pads on both sides (use copper grease-thin film on the back of the pad) pump the brake pedal 10-20 times and then adjust the handbrake cable

Yes you are right about the park brake being connected to brake caliper, but back in it off may not be necessary, if it does need to be backed off do the following to access the adjustment nut, also the rear brake pads are only about 1/2 the thickness of the fronts so make sure you really do need pads. here is the procedure to adjust the brake tension.
The adjuster nut is connected to components of the parking brake lever. You will need to remove the plastic cover inside the vehicle to access the adjustment,looking down you will see the cables coming to each side of the equalizer on the base of the park brake cable. the adjuster nut is in between the cables on the equalizer. The proper stroke (or height) for the lever of your vehicle is 6 brake handle ratchet clicks (of course you will loosen the nut here and readjust after job on brakes is done) To readjust for proper tension tighten the nut and then check the stroke, multiple adjustments may need to be made to get desired 6 clicks before brake holds correctly.
