Getting the piston out and then trying to get it back in is not something I would recommend unless you know what you are doing.

I am surprised that the piston is frozen in the caliper in a 1997 Mercedes. Something doesn't sound right.

I got this picture from the DIYer section, does yours look like this caliper?

BTW, prying against the rotor with a screw driver to push the pistons back into the brake caliper is not a good idea in my book.
