I've been trying to do my rear brakes this week and ran into a few issues. At first, I didn't know I needed a scan tool to retract my pistons, so I bought a scan tool. Started working on my brakes and when I tried to place my caliper back on my piston is too far out to put them back on with new brakes. Do I need a caliper compressor wind back tool or is there something else needed?

I have a 2017 Chevy Malibu Premier 9-speed.

Do either of these procedures allow the piston to be compressed? For the rears I thought a tool was needed to compress but haven't done it myself so not sure.

I just wanted to make sure a tool was needed before I try again and there wasn't anything else need.
