So here's the deal, iv got a base 00' mustang and the back right caliper piston was leaking fluid. I got the rebuild kit and now i'm attempting to take the piston out. The biggest problem is that i had already cranked them down previously and now i need to get them back out. As you all probably already know, its got the ebrake system built in so its exceedingly fun to work with without the tool(which i dont have). What is the procedure for extracting the piston? Do i just use a flat head screw driver to apply upward force on the piston and turn counter-clockwise with some channel locks..or what? I dont have an air compressor or any other fancy tools, just channel locks, wrenches, screwdrivers and a large socket set(forgive me, im only 22 lol)
Thanks ahead of time :)

I don't see why a jolt of compressed air wouldn't force it out. Need to find a guy with air hose and a blowgun. Was thinking at first, use air down at the "air store", but no way to do it with their permanently fastened on tire chuck.
