replacing rear brake pads on 2002 Buick LeSabre

There is only one bolt on the caliper to remove. The other pin is not a bolt. Is this model made such that once the removable bolt is removed that the caliper can then be tilted to remove the pads? The other question I have is,is the piston the type that can be compressed using a C clamp or is it the screw type needing a special tool? Thanks for you help

Remove the lower bolt, rotate the caliper upward, take out pads etc, rotate down, grease caliper bolt with high temp silicon and reinstall.
