If you are careful you can turn them back in with a pair of channel lock pliars. but use caution to only grab the very edge of the piston. I replaced my rear brakes that way and had no problems. if you are talking about the rear pistons for the brake calipers, they are similar to that of the toyotas, you need to goto autozone, or your local parts store and ask for the disk brake tools, they need to be "wound" back in unlike the fronts which will just slide Lostsoul

Raise and support the front of the vehicle. Remove the wheels. Remove 1/2 of the brake fluid from the reservoir and disguard. Remove the caliper pins. Raise and support the caliper. Remove the outer brake pad. Return the inner brake pad and piston into the caliper with a disc brake piston tool. Remove the inner pad. Install new brake pads. Fill brake fluid to correct level. Reassemble. NOTE: Be sure to use metallic pads - you won't get the brake dust mess on your rims.

On the back calibers you have to screw the pistons in they don't compress in, you can ruin them if you try. They sell the square tool for a couple of bucks.

DON'T KNOW IF YOU HAVE THIS , BUT, A SPECIAL TOOL IS REQUIRED TO TURN THE CALIPER BRAKE PISTON BACK INTO THE CALIPER TO ALLOW REMOVAL OF THE PADS THIS IS FOR REAR BRAKES ONLY , THIS SET UP IS PART OF THE PARKING/EMERGENCY BRAKE FOR THIS VEHICLE. Yes there is a special tool but you can get away with a c clamp it will turn as it goes in The only way to remove the brakes is to remove the entire caliper if the pins are stuck you would have to heat them up. Remember to put caliper grease on pins when reinstalling them .

The front brake caliper should retract with minimal effort with the aid of a c-clamp and an old brake pad. If it takes alot of pressure to make it retract I would replace the caliper. The rear brake caliper is a different story because it houses the e-brake also. The brake caliper piston must be rotated clockwise as you apply pressure to retract it. This requires a special tool that you can purchase from your local auto parts store. This tool is not expensive, it should be less than $20.

On the fronts, you can use a C clamp to compress the piston but the backs you have to screw the piston in, don't use the C clamp because you will screw it up, they sell the small tool that you use to screw in the piston at any auto parts store.
