(SECONDARY) BOLTS, CALIPER MOUNT B

1997 Ford Crown Victoria

Brakes problem
1997 Ford Crown Victoria V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 100000 miles

The caliper is off, now I'm trying to remove the caliper mount bracket so I can replace the rotor. I have been beating on these two stuck bolts for 2 days now. Would they happen to be reverse threads?

No! They have locktite on the threads, either heat them with a tourch, being carful not to burn the ball joint dust boot, or use a long handle 1/2 drive ratchett wrench and use a quik slapping motion.

Thank you! The torch had to be applied twice, but they finally gave up the ghost with minimal wear and tear.
Your welcome.
