The rear caliper pistons,turn as they go in,one side turns left,the other side turns right,after the piston is turned all the way in,align the notches in the piston to fit the brake pad.A square tool can be purchased at the parts store for very little money,that fits a 3/8 ratchet to do the job of turning the piston.

It's a specialised tool.
