Help w/ new brake pads

Car: 1986 Audi 4000 CSQ

  I was going to change the read brake pads on my car, but I couldn't get 
the piston to press back into the cylinder. How exactly is this done? I 
removed the bolts for the guide pins, and removed the caliper. But when I 
tried to push the piston back in, it didn't want to move. I tried the 
other side, and same thing. Am I missing a step? I know with the fronts 
that is all I had to do. This is the first time I'm doing the rears, but 
I figured it was similar to the front. (Now if they were shoes like the 
'83 I had, it would be no problem...)
