how to adjust the piston or rear caliper when fitting new pads ,does it slide or screw?

as the piston is well out <peogeot

for REAR disc brakes, it actually has to be turned while there is pressure on it to get the piston back in. i used a c clamp to put slight pressure while i turned the piston. autozone will loan you the tool for this for free (it was loaned out the day i needed it is why i had to get creative to do it)

you need a resetting tool to screw the piston back into the caliper

does it have a parking brake built onto the caliper? if it does more than likly it screws in.
