Front caliper rebuild ATE brand

I'm assuming that you can get the caliper off of the car and take it to the bench.[ATTACH]Click image for larger version

I removed the piston by forcing it out while it was still on the car by pressing the brake pedal with the pads out. I believe you can use compressed air instead. Remove the dust cover if it didn't come out with the pads. It just pulls off. remove the grommets for the caliper bolts, and the square section seal inside the caliper.
