You should be able to get thme out by pumping the brakes slowly. Then, clean 
everything up well, oil the pistons, and replace all the seals. Or, buy a 
rebuilt caliper.

Subject: G-60 rebuild or?

Just replaced the seized right front G60 caliper on the Urq with one from 
the V8 and was hoping for words of wisdom.  I initially thought the carrier 
pins were frozen (usually the case) though I tend to lube them up and check 
them periodically.  Mine were fine.  The pistons were (are) stuck.  The 
boots are intact as far as I can see.  So what do I do?  Don't want to 
distort the pistons by using vise-grips or the like...

'91 v8 quattro 5-Speed (not exactly stock) :-)
'91 V8 pearl (new addition)
