Question Rear Caliper Housing Not Coming Out?

Front Pads were a piece of cake, but now onto the rear and for some reason the caliper isn't just sliding out. I got that long 17mm out. Anything i need to do? I mean do the brakes pads need some prying in between the pads and rotors? Help guys. Thanks!

You have to twist since it has a parking brake built in. The piston has two holes - you can either use a special tool from any hardware store or needle-nose pliers then "unscrew" it
