HOW DO I REMOVE MY CALIPER PINS ?

2003 GMC Safari • 12,000 miles

I tried using liquid wrench, wd 40, a torch, they will not budge. They are torx, I have the appropriate socket, I have the new pads just cant put them on, because the caliper will not come off, I used a c clamp and pushed in the pistons successfully. Please help, Thanks, Anthony

So are they frozen because of salt and snow?Also can you remove the caliper bracket bolts?

I haven't tried, that was my second step, they seem frozen also, I need to get a breaker bar on them, still have problem with the caliper It looks like the top bolt is cross threaded.

You may be replacing the caliper then.
