    14 Tundra front brake pins frozen



    Own a 2014 Tundra, about 56,000 miles on it. In the process of replacing pads and on front left caliper, can not remove one of the Brake pins, not the caliper slide pins from all the posts I see. Living in VT with lovely salty roads, it is frozen in there pretty good not allowing me to remove the pads. I tried using hammer to knock it out but now end of pin is starting to mushroom out and hopefully it will still come out of the caliper. I do have replacement pin so what is the best way to get the old out for the new one?

    Cut pin with a Sawzall.
    Can't really get a good grip with Vise Grips.

    Have not tried heat as of yet. If so, heat caliper and not pad?

    Thanks

    Soak it with good some penetrating oil for an hour or so then try the hammer again before you heat it.

    I'd blast it every hour for the rest of the day then try and remove it tomorrow.
