I bought new brake pads and new rotors for the front of my truck the other day. This is the first time I ever changed the front brake pads on this truck. Is there a trick to getting those darn pins out of the Caliper to remove the pads? I tried pounding them out first with the caliper on the rotor no luck!! Then I removed the Caliper and then was able to get the 1 pin started out but couldnt get the other 1 to budge. I didnt wanna pull the 1 all the way out for fear that I wouldnt be able to get it back in if I couldnt get the other 1 out.. I was gonna try and disconnect the caliper all together and take it over to the work bench and put it in the vice and try driving them out that way. But then I probably would of had to bleed the brakes after I hooked it back up. I didnt have any help to do that at the time I was doing it. So I put it all back together and now I think I am gonna take it somewhere and have it done..
This is the Second toyota that I have had that I couldnt get the stupid pins out to change the brakes. I love the Toyota trucks but after this I might consider buying American the next time because of this issue!!
Appreciate any advice..
