Help.

I'm resealing the brakes and a front brake piston is stuck. I pumped it out most of the way with the brake fluid and now can't get it any further. It's a twin piston caliper and it's brother is out without a problem. I've been lucky all these years and this is the first time I'm stumped. I don't have an air line and I've tried the boiling water in a bucket. Any tips?

Sort out/clean the other piston & refit it. Then clamp the clean piston in place, put some fluid back into the system then pump the brakes till the stuck piston pops out.

The piston that will move push it back and put a G clamp over that piston and the brake caliper and continue to pump thebrake lever
