I just started doin my brakes and I cant get the brake pad holder/bracket bolts off. I soaked them with pb blaster and they still wont move. WTF? The caliper bolts came off easy but now im stuck. How can I get these off?
yea they should be still ok, heat em up, not the heads though right the bracket then after about a minute or so try turning them, if they get tight coming out work em back and forth, you dont wanna break em off in there
rubber mallet??? you want the force to be exerted on the the ratchet, not absobed by the rubber mallet dude. Get a 4lb hammer. I never use heat on those btw. I think your just not trying hard enough...put your body weight into it.
Fock no! I'm pissed... They just will not budge.I tried everything possible and finally gave up. I do not want to snap a bolt. I'm gonna bring it to a friend of mines shop on monday and have him do it.
