    If you ain't reusing em, just bang them with a rubber mallet, or hammer, on the outside edges. Go in a star pattern

    Clockwise iirc. Easy to see once you start turning it.

    One tip about moving the pistons back in, bolt the caliper back on, no rotor. That way it fixes the caliper, and you can use that ratchet/extension and box with pins on it. Much safer, and easier.
