Default rear brake is stuck open

I was checking the left rear brake and it got stuck in the brake position (open) after I asked my wife to push the brake pedal. How do I adjust it to go back into position?

I am assuming you have the caliper off and cannot get the piston to retract into the caliper? If that is the case, you need a c-clamp to push the piston back into the caliper.

Some of the rear brake caliper pistons need to rotated to get them back into the fully retracted position.
