it requires a special "rear caliper piston tool"...newer cars rear disc brakes calipers cannot be released with a c clamp and old pad, there are two holes or slots on the caliper which many people have used needle nose pliers to turn (in lieu of the piston tool or "borg" tool), i believe counter clockwise but don't quote me.
