these rear calipers are the same sort of system as on my 2001 Espace.
you can wind the pistons back using a 6"G-clamp where the threaded end has a rotating foot, it takes a few seconds a very small amount a pressure and the piston will start to rotate as you wind the handle.
The pistons run on a long thread/spiral and if you operate the hand brake part with your fingers it will push the piston back out.

Saved my day, thanks!

It took me about 3 hours to get the first side done (visiting Renault Forums after the first hour of frustration) and a half-hour to do the other.

Just a couple of things to add (sorry if it's been said and I've missed it):

The handbrake cable unhooks fairly easily, which then allows the caliper to be swung round for better accessibility. I laid my two wheels flat on top of each other and supported it on them.

I wasted a lot of time turning the cylinder, expecting it to screw itself in, but it doesn't.
Then, as suggested above, I used a 150mm wood clamp to put the pressure on; it needed quite a bit. Then I screwed the cylinder in with a super-wrench; adjustable crescent pliers would probably do too.
