Frozen Stuck Seized Caliper Pin Removal HD (Failure & Success =D)
Click Here to Subscribe! http://youtube.com/carsntoys Website: http://carsntoys.net My failed attempt removing a frozen, seized and stubborn caliper pin. After 20 minutes of having zero success I decided to purchase a new caliper mounting bracket, caliper pins and the pin boot for $30 and calling it a day. In my opinion, spending the $30 was well worth the investment rather than spending hours attempting to remove the caliper bolt. Always wear safety goggles!

Stuck Brake Caliper or Bad Rubber Brake Line
Stuck Brake Caliper or Bad Rubber Brake Line. Make sure the brake caliper is what is stuck and not trouble with the rubber flex line. In this video I try and show how I determine if the brake caliper is stuck, the slides are stuck ,or a rubber flex line is causing the issue. If you try and push the piston back in the caliper by sticking a screwdriver in and pulling,it will give you a good indication of what the issue is. You may also need to loosen a bleeder or a banjo bolt to test the line . By relieving brake fluid pressure , if the brake caliper goes in easy then chances is the rubber flex line is the issue.
