Well by the end you will need new pins, have you tried using a punch?

Mine were pretty bad. Ended up starting to damage a caliper so I pulled it off and brought it to a machine shop. They charged me a half hour.

Had that issue before. Used a propane torch to heat them up a little then used a tap to remove. Needed new pins after this and don't forget to grease them throughout the year.

well i took the caliper off cut the pins w/ a sawzall n the front ones came out easily w just a vicegrip holding them n a hammer but the backs i had to heat up pretty good n beat the **** outta them til they came out :P i actually bent the one pin but then i was able to get vicegrip on it to get it turnin so i sprayed it w pb blaster while turning it cut it n then it came out. the inner pad was seized to the caliper and they were brembo pads so idk if theyve ever been changed lol

I cut the pins on both sides and removed the pads to release the tension on the pins. Then I pounded them out with a punch. You got it figured out tho.

So, I won. I spent 3 hours on 2 calipers, pulled without removing the caliper and any damage.
but of course there was a magic device

Nice. Mine mushroomed and needed to be drilled out.

I put anti seize on my new ones and take them out annually.
