Hi Group,


This afternoon I was doing a front brake pad replacement job.
The driver's side went easy, the passenger side not so much.


I use an alan-socket fitting (3/16" I think was the size) to remove these two pins, one on top of the caliper, one below it.


I tried an alan wrench also, but it also just 'spun'.
The "alan/hex" shaped hole is striped.


I tried vice grips, but this pin is reallllly in there.


H-O-W can I get it out, to replace the brake pads???


H-E-L-P!!


Thanks,


Irv in CT, flustered right now!!!
