    I recently changed the front pads and sensor on my 2005 X5 3.0D, I now have to change the rear pads also.

    When I changed the front ones I struggled pushing the piston back into the caliper.

    Is there any easy way to push the piston back, maybe a undoing a srew or some otherway to release the pressure?

    Thanks.

    Using a piston wind back tool (widely available for usual auto centres that also supply tools) would be the easiest and most sensible option.

    i always open the bleed nipple when pushing pistons back in.
    i heard somewhere that abs equipped cars dont like back pressure through the control module or something.
    i then bleed the brakes once everthing is back together.
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    The caliper piston should go back fairly easy, if it doesn't then you have a problem, either a collapsed hose or rusty caliper piston

    Take the Brake fluid reservoir lid off..Then you should be able to use a windback tool to wind the piston back in.
