1999 Infinity I30 Rear Brakes

I have a 1999 Infinity I30 that I am trying to change the rear brake pads on. I cannot seem to compress the caliper piston in order to reinstall the caliper on the rotor. I have tried screwing the piston as well as using a c-clamp on it. Neither worked. What next?

You'll need a tool to turns the piston in, sometime a pair of needle nose would works, spray some wd40 on the piston dirt seal would also helps, do not try to compress it in, you'll damage the piston shaft (emergency brake's shaft) and when it damaged, you may have to replace the caliper.
