Turn the piston into the caliper while pushing it in (normally but not always clockwise)
Special tools are available but mcgyver won??

I read this on a forum about doing an ED's rear brakes,if you can understand the way its written it sounds quite simple.

I remove the handbrake lever from the back of the caliper. This exposes two flats on the central screw thingy. Screw it in about 3-4mm with a spanner, then push the piston with a Gclamp much like you do with the fronts. This pushes the flats back out, Repeat the process another 3-4mm. Again use Gclamp. Repeat 3 times and you'll have enough clearance for new pads. Refit handbrake lever and you done. No need for special tool. Works for me, did this just yesterday.
