I have a cheap brake piston pressing tool for my BMW brakes, I use it to
apply pressure to the piston and gently( key word) grab the piston with
a large pair of channel locks and twist. This method should not require
a ton of pressure from the press or the channel locks. If it does it is
time for the rebuild action.
