There is a special tool for winding the piston back in, see pic.

I used a clamp and the old pad (inner) to push mine back. Brake fluid may spill out of master cylinder if you topped it off recently. Go slowly and it should go back in. If not you may need to clean, rebuild, replace the brake caliper.
