147 rear brakes

Hi....I am hoping that someone can help me here ? I am changing the rear brake pads on my Alfa 147 for the first time and found the job pretty straight forward until it came to winding the piston back into the caliper (to give room for the new thicker pads). Something seems to be stopping it from winding back in.

Initial thoughts are (1) is there a bias valve preventing fluid returning out of the piston. (2) Should I have removed the hand brake cable?
(3) Is there something else that I should be doing that I am missing ?

Any help gratefully received

Re: 147 rear brakes

when winding back in, you have to apply pressure while turning the piston. You're maybe doing that already.

As you have to bleed the brakes anyway, loosen the bleed valve on the caliper. This should allow you to push the pistons back in a bit easier
