The caliper pistons should be able to be pushed in by hand, but if that is too difficult use a screw driver to gain leverage off of the caliper body itself - being careful to not damage any seals.

How to Replace brakes on a 2005 Mazda 3?

To change the brakes on a Mazda 3 shouldn't be rocket science. However it took me a lil while to figure it out. It's almost the same as changing regular caliper brakes except instead of using a C-clamp or similar object to compress the piston...use a pair of needlenose pliers and turn the tip of the piston in a clockwise rotation to compress it. A clamp will not work. aside from that everything should be pretty simple. Hope this helps make sure to apply pressure while turning

Why wont the caliber go in on bake brakes of a 2005 mustang when changing the brakes?

You need a rear disc brake caliper tool set for this job. A pair of needle nose pliers can work also, but damage to the caliper is likely, if you're trying to get it done in a hurry.These rear calipers cannot be compressed with a clamp like the front calipers can be.The piston actually screws into the caliper. Again, look for a disc brake caliper tool set. Harbor Freight Tools sells a $20 kit that will do the job.
