What nuts can't u get off the lug nuts?There's no nuts holding the caliper on. What's wrong with the caliper is it causing the rotor to be locked up. Try taking out the 14mm head bottom caliper pin and using a big screwdriver or pry bar to pop the caliper up off the brake pads. Get some liquid wrench spray and let it soak into everything atleast 30 mins the longer the better before u start taking the bolts off. Let me know what u find.

Use some liquid wrench on the bolts it's not that expensive and works good. If ur facing the bolts they loosen counter clockwise. Try to get that bottom caliper pin out first and see if the caliper will flip up.U may have frozen caliper pins also and might have to replace the caliper housing too but we will have to play it by ear.U might have to get a breaker to get more leverage. See if u can rent one they rent tools for free at autozone u just pay retail price and when u bring it back u get ur money refunded. Eat ur wheaties and let me know how it goes.

Well that's up to u if u want to sell it heck if u were close enough I would by it from u with only a 125,000 miles on it for 500. So if u have the money to get another car then great. If not I'll help u the best I can. Just be clear hear ur Trying to change the brakes or one of the calipers or both the caliper and brakes?
