I am replacing the rear brakes on a 2005 Kia Spectra. The caliper will not retract by turning clockwise. How do I retract the caliper?

hi, welcome to just answer . sometimes you need to turn and push at the same time the caliper piston can get stuck most auto parts stores and places like e-bay and harbor freight sell inexpensive kits for doing this job heres a link to show you what it looks like http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/New-Brake-Caliper-Tool-Set-for-Disc-Brakes_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ43998QQihZ023QQitemZ360055935511QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWDVW#ebayphotohosting

The caliper retracted some but not enough to fit over brake pads.
Thank you for your help...I eventually got it with some additional turning. Thanks again!
your welcome . next time use one of these kits it saves a lot of time and energy
