there is a special tool that can be purchased at any auto parts store made specifically for compressing brake caliper pistons. I personally use a 4 inch c-clamp. works every time.

The piston in the rear caliper on the 2008 Grand Caravan is the "screw in" type. A special tool is required to do the job.

You don't remove the piston, you just compress it. Loosen the cap on the master cylinder and then compress the piston all the way in. You can then remove the old pad and install a new one.
