I have a 97 Mercury Tracer with disk brakes in rear. I disconnected the emergency brake cable and loosened the bleed screw and cannot compress the cylinder to put new pads on. Is there a trick?

take a pair of channel locks and turn the caliper piston clockwise while pushing it in a little bit at a time until it is in all the way. Some pins on the back of them so they sit in the caliper right. make sure to line those pins up. They do make a tool to turn the piston but I have done it this way before. Hope this helps leave comment.
