Here is a nice kit also Brake Caliper Piston Tool Kit I always use the tip from the long nose plier and works perfectly fine

Just following up to close this out. Advice above was correct (thank you). I had not wound back the piston, thus the gap. I used the needle nose pliers to rotate it back in. I noticed a massive chunk missing out of one of the ebrake pads and one side was worn down to nothing so I ordered new ebrake pads from Rich (redpants) that he helped develop. Embarrassing squeak is now gone and all is right again.

FYI: When you get the new pads, chafe the edges 45* and it will avoid getting a squeak noise on these after car sits for awhile. Hehe..and don't forget to wind back the piston completely before installing the new set.

Thanks Chris, the pads Rich (Redpants) sells have the 45* already there!
