Everything going smooth on my DIY brake job on my s500 benz, Until i hit the rear. I got everything off and i went to push in the pistons to make room for the pads and the rotor, and the front piston will not move. i had have put tons of pressure with a vice grip and pliers. i have the brake oil cap off as well. I am not sure what else to do. When i push down on the back piston it pushes the front one out further. but i cannot move the front one to create space. WHAT CAN I DO??? any help out there would be awesome.

TWO sets of vicegrips, 1 on each piston, (C-clamp style v-grip) Take your time and push slowly.

ok so i guess piston was hyper extended and was caught on brim of piston housing. I turned the piston a couple times and was able to push it back in. However now the rubber seal around the piston is broken, i am guessing it will leak if i put it back on. So i am looking for a rebuild kit to replace the rubber seal but finding one for mercedes bens s500 isnt easy. anybody know any place or web sight?
