After you remove the rear caliper and old pads you will see the caliper piston has 4 slots that require a special tool to twist the piston down, you can usually get one to use from your local auto zone or parts store (I was able to use a pair of needle nose pliers as I'm sure you can), twist the piston clock wise applying a little pressure as you twist, make sure the rubber dust boot is not twisting as well, if it is twisting it is just stuck to the piston and may need a small bit of lube applied between the boot and piston but do your best to keep all dirt/dust out. Now after doing this and have enough room to put the new pads on you will notice that on the back of the pad that rests on the piston there is a small "keeper pin" (for lack of a better word) that will need to be lined up with one of the slots or notches on the piston so that the pad will rest flat against the piston, put on the new pads, reinstall the caliper and slowly pump your brake pedal until you feel the pressure build back up and there you have it. Note, removing the e-brake cable or opening the bleeder valve will do no good and what ever you do don't try to compress the piston you will either damage it or just get extremely frustrated. I just finished replacing front and rear on my daughters 2003, a two hour job start to finish I assumed..... 6 hours and few fits of frustration later I figured it out so I hope this helps at least one backyard mechanic have a better day.
