You can't use a C-clamp for rear brake. In most vehicles (except where rear parking brake shoes are separate), the rear brake is used for parking brake as well. As you use the brake, the rear piston twists out more and more for parking purposes. You will need this tool (Disc Brake Piston Tool)
One of the sides of this tool will match the grooves onto your piston, and all you have to do is keep turning clockwise using your standard 3/8" ratchet. This particular one is PN 648410 from Checker O'Reilly, sells for $10. You may put the bleeder valve back in, before or after, doesn't really matter. Just make sure you bleed the system.
