There are YouTube videos on the subject, but trust me, you are way overthinking it. Just pull the caliper off the bike, take the hose off and blow some low pressure air in it. The pistons will pop out. Clean everything real good and push the pistons back in, put it pack on the bike, and bleed the system. Done.
