use a G clamp to put slight pressure on piston and then turn piston with a pair of water pump grips half a turn then pressure G clamp again
slow job without the right tool but it can be done

How did you depress the pistons? Did you use a heavy duty Air tool clamp? I'v done brake jobs in my driveway using basic cheep clamps and only manpower. Been successful. Also done total ceased you would not believe Just took Some Nasty brute force and the right tool You should be good to go.

SOURCE: how do i remove back caliper
hi from uk the rear calipers on your vehicle are not push back pistons like the front brakes you have to remove bolts that secure caliper to its carrier and lift caliper clear then you will see piston has slots? these pistons have to be wound/ rotated backwards into the caliper you have to both push and rotate c/wise untill piston is fully home there is a tool for this purpose which makes job easy obtainable from motorstores ? cheapest is by SEALY TOOLS cost approx £10 uk but with a little patience ? you can improvise/ fabricate a tool by cutting an old 1/2 " drive socket to fit slots then use a T bar and short ext you can now both apply pressure whilst rotating piston hope this helps/inspires you ?

If air doesn't work, I have made a tool that helped. I got a bolt that fit into where the brake line goes, (Banjo bolt) drilled a hole through it, and thread tapped it to accept a grease fitting on the top. Then I pump grease into it to force out the piston. (s)

The rear caliper contains the mechanism for the park barke assembly so retracting the piston is a little different than the front. You need to turn the piston as you press it in. There are special tools to help with this but you can usually do it with regular hand tools. Note the two small deprssions in the piston. Place the tips of your needle nose pliers in those depressions and press the piston into the caliper while turning. Most will needed to be twisted to the right but some twist to the left. Go slow and make sure you are not "unscrewing" the piston from the park brake mechanism. If the piston looks like it is unscrewing, turn it in the other direction.
