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.
