Is there a trick to compressing the brake pistons. I have changed a lot of brakes and have never had this much trouble changing my brake pads. This is the first time I had to do this on this car and no matter what I do I cannot move the pistons. What am I doing wrong?

YOU HAVE TO USE A SPECIAL TOOLS FOR THE REAR

IT TURNS THE PISTON AS ITS PUSHING IT IN
U CAN TRY TO TURN THE CALIPER PISTON WITH A BIT OF FORCE PUSH IT IN
