Is using air to blow out the piston through the little hole the only way to remove them? I don't have a air compressor and was wondering if there was another way.

Yeah... the break off easily. You will need to find some compressed air. Watch out when you do that because it launches the piston and sprays a mist of DOT fluid all over the place. Wrap the whole thing in a rag first.

Why don't you just pull the lever: this will force the piston out.
