    1st tool is what I use, also make sure you spray some lube, say wd40 around the rubber boot of the piston, so it doesnt twist & tear as you wind piston back.

    The Sealey tool is normally for rear calipers where the piston indexes as the pad wears to keep the handbrake in contention. The second one is a generic tool for returning pistons in a single or double piston regular caliper that has no handbrake scheme as those on the front.

    If the bolts are the same as on my 2009 S3 then you will need a Spline tool bit but someone else may be able to confirm as I think it's either M12 or M14.

    For many years, I've been using a G Clamp for front piston and grinder's Peg spanner for the rears. Works okay.
