I'm attempting to change the rear disc brake pads but the pads have two holes on either side at the top of the pad. I don't know how to remove the pins running through the pads. As the pads wear thay're supposed to slide on the pins.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi there,

Thank you for the donation,

Remove the two guide bolts and lift the caliper clear of the rotor, the guide pins should be free to slide by hand, sometimes the dust boots allow moisture into the pins and they bind up, these pins will come free with a bit of lubrication if bound up, there is no special tool to compress the piston back into the caliper. see pic for exploded view of caliper.

The sliding bushing is capped on both ends and won't simply slid out or I could just pull it out without removing anything but the wheel and tire. My brake assembly doesn't have a dust boot on the sliding bushing and doesn't appear to be the diagram of my specific brake assembly, however it came up so tiny on my pc its difficult to see. Thanks

How should I remove the sliding bushing pins, they are capped at both ends? It appears I would have to pound them out? Do the sliding bushing pins need to be replaced each time the pads a replaced? Is the diagram you sent me specific to my car or is it generic? Thanks

Hi there, the pins do not normally have to be replaced are the pins stuck in the Caliper? if so the will have to be knocked out carefully, they should be a push fit, if they are seized in, you may have yo work them with spray lubricant for some time as they can be extremely tight if the boots have allowed moisture in, check the larger pic, is this the same as yours, can you post a pic for me to see your problem?
