Maybe you mean, the first one came out, but then you couldn't get the second one out. I put the first piston to pop back in, lubing with with some brake fluid first, then use the old brake pads to "hold" it in place while I am pressuring to pop the second one.
On the front anyway... the rear is a little more difficult since it's opposed.

Yet another great writeup bro!!!

Might I add that if you are cautious you can use compressed air to remove the pistons also. If you don't have a compressor you can use the pressure of the master cylinder to push the pistons most of the way out.
