I can't push the rear brake caliper piston in so I can change the brake pads, I tried using a sea clamp but it didn't work. Anyone have any ideas on what I can do?

That piston works in conjunction with the parking brake and it has to be threaded in while applying pressure.

They make a bunch of different special tools for that purpose.

I found turning back the piston with an adjustable plumber wrench. There is not much pressure needed.
