Default Rear caliper question

I have a 2000 GS Integra. I don't understand how to retract the rear
caliper pistons. It appears from the manual that you rotate the piston to
line up with the tab on the inner pad. However, do you retract the piston
with a c-clamp like you do the fronts, or does turning the piston retract
it.
This is urgent, I'm about to botch a rear brake job.

Thanks a lot.

Thanks. It turned easily with just a pair of needle nose pliers.
