Ive had to recon one of each of the front and rear calipers pistons.
Ive always had a new seal kit at hand just incase its required.
Reference only not instructions
Basically I Removed the caliper and then the pads and shims from it, I got my sister to pump the brake pedel, ( carefully monitoring the brake resiviour and topping it up), used a little cloth (around the brake line) and small mole grips to clip the line closes as the piston merged from the caliper. (You would normally use an air hose to pop the piston out but if seized It does not always work).
Remove the seal and inspected the caliper pot. used some wet and dry paper to remove the corrosion on the piston and around in the pot. Cleaned it all up and re-assembled with the original seal as it was in good condition using a really nice high temp silver greeze my mate recommended (Using a nice greese is important).
Problem free ever since.
To get the seal kits, Conceptua tuning is the best place.
