Hello sallypark740,

Yes there is a special tool required to compress the caliper piston.

The tool turns and compresses the piston at the same time.

Hi!
You need a tool specially designed for it, costs about $9. Most auto parts have that tool. I think it is called Brake Piston Retrieving tool

The brake calipar pistons on the rear, have to be turned in with a special tool, they can't be pressed in like the front. turn them in just far enough for the new pads to fit over the rotors.

How to push back the piston in the rear brake caliper of Focus LX 2ltr 2003


There is actually a special tool for pushing the piston back, you could try and put some force on the piston but at the same time you have to turn the piston because the hand brake works of there aswell and there is some thread inside that keeps on adjusting the caliper piston as the pads waer down.
Take special care not to damage the calliper rubbers when turning the piston

How to remove rear brakes (ie pads and discs) from a Ford Focus 04 1.8 TDCI


You will need a special socket which is square and has a small prong at each corner. That will screw the piston down to the the stop. As to getting the caliper off buy an inexpensive shop manual which will show the procedure with pictures, it is simple and once the pistons are seated into the caliper with the adapter I described you are home. I got my socket adapter at a neighborhood auto parts store. Don't forget to bleed your brake fluid.
