I am trying to change the rear brake pads on my T/A. How do I get the piston back into the caliper?
First, open the master cylinder cap and remove some of the fluid. Then, use a very large c-clamp to SLOWLY depress it back in. Keep checking to make sure you don't overflow the master cylinder.

If they are the push in type, I have used a pry bar for years. Just leave the old pads in and pry between the pad and the rotor, and work the cylinder back in. Then remove and replace the pads. I've always done it that way unless I had the screw in type. C-clamps can be a pain in the butt sometimes.
