Had to change rear pads and the guide pins both L/R seem to be frozen. I tried PB Blaster, Heat, and a punch neither side seems to free up. For the time being I just changed the pad knowing the inside shoe will wear prematurely. I want to know if anyone either knows a way to successfully free the pins or a detailed how to on changing out the rear calipers, specifically how to deal with the parking brake assembly on the caliper. Do I need a special tools to deal with the parking brake part of the change out? I looked and couldn't find a thread on it. One with pics would be great.
I thought of the pliers too but in the end i thought it would scratch the S*$t out of it and would make it worse in the long term. I guess at this point I COULD try that before I replace em. I ended up tearing the rubber boots off. IF I did get them free I think I will be constantly "F"ing with them. Thanks for the replys!!
Checked out the repair manual link.... Exactly what I needed THANKS!!!
