The "proper" way is to use a metric hex wrench to
rotate the piston back into the caliper. I think they
are threaded to support the emergency brake.
I have found that a large pair of channel-lock
pliers works well, so long as one is CAREFUL
not to bugger the dust boot. Simply grab the
piston with the channel-locks and rotate 'til
retracted enough to fit over the new pads.
Be patient and CAREFUL!
