    Are you talking about the piston in the brake caliper?
    If so,a G clamp wound slowly would do the job.

    indeed it does need to be twisted and compressed at the same time..

    there may be no option but to buy a kit..Thou you can use slip joint pliers if you're careful with the boot on the piston..Be aware thou that not all kits come with the 21mm adaptor to fit vectra-c..

    you cna get a piston wind back tool at halfords in the sykes pickavant section. about £15 - £20.

    Well it works on the ford calipers fitted to my caterham. See no reason shy it should not work on other calipers too.
