Yeh this is a pain in the @rse.
What brakes do you have?
Get some business cards and slide them in either side of the pad and rotor while the wheel is in. Give the lever a good squeeze, then take out the cards and squeeze firmly. You may need to also re-center your caliper before you do this.
If that dosn't work, get a clean flat head screwdriver and with the wheel out push and pry the pads (which will push the pistons) back into the caliper.
