    Juicy 7 caliper overhaul: can't get pistons to unseat

    Doing a Juicy 7 overhaul....following the directions on SRAM's website.
    They recommend unseating the piston by blowing compressed air through
    the banjo-bolt hole. Not working. Pistons won't budge. Any other ideas?
    Would really appreciate it!
    Cheers,
    Lee

    I guess I could keep the brake intact and use hydro pressure to push pistons
    out by squeezing the lever but I've already disasembled the caliper. I have 3 calipers
    (two Juicy 7's and a 5) ... all of them have sticky pistons. I liked the brakes for the first
    season or 2 and now they all suck. I guess it's the really silty dirt we have around here.
    My only guess b/c I've talked to friends that have had 7's for longer w/ absolutely no problems.
