    Pistons can be popped out using an air line,just watch where you put your fingers and wear eye protection. :D

    Plus 1 ref the air pump

    I rebuilt my calipers using one, really helpful when putting the piston/ seal back in by slowly using the air pump until the seal went in

    also found this video helpful

    Indeed, , wouldnt fancy using an airline in case u end up digging the piston out of the wall:eek:

    plus must admit using the foot pump u could gently increase the pressure bit by bit to get the old piston out and the new seal in

    indeed, but must admit at the end of the day wish I had bought new or exchange calipers as there wasn’t much difference in price

    wouldn’t bother messing around on the D3 and would buy new calipers, think there around £70
