take caliper off an press brake pedal an the pistons shud come out. if stuck might need somethin to grip them an pull but watch u dont get fluid evrywhere. once out grease put back in a bleed system

Re: brembo calipers sticking

they shud all move as pressure pushes all. if stuck take off resevior cap an put rag over it, remove caliper from bolts an brake pads, wrap rag over caliper an use some pliers or grips to squeeze to piston back in. dont damage caliper coz u will cry but this may free them
