I'm confused. That boot is just a dust boot and will not prevent the piston from going back in. What CAN happen is if that boot was torn previously AND you have steel pistons, water can get in there and cause the chrome plating on the piston to lift, and rust spots form underneath it. That definitely will make it almost impossible to get the piston back in or out.
So are you saying you installed a new caliper? If so, did everything go back together properly or are you still having trouble?
