SRAM rival brake pistons not pushing back in

Hi folks
I have a canyon grail which is 6 months old. I removed the pads to clean out grime and to lube the pistons. When I attempted to push the pistons back in I got nowhere they are rock solid. I have bled out some of the oil to see if that would help. Unfortunately I am getting nowhere. Any help is appreciated. I feel I must be missing something
The brakes are rival

Open the bleed valve as you push the pistons back. I built a bolt/angle bracket to push the twin pistons on my KTM back, I didn't need to bleed them to get them to move, but I was using a wrench.
