    Pin caliper zeiised

    I am trying to remove the pad pins for my 2006 subaru wrx (4 piston front caliper) and they seem to have ziesed at the caliper body. For now I have saturated it with penetrating oil and will wait for the next day. Anybody have dealt with similar situation? It seems to be a very simple job but I am not able to move it. I will try to heat the caliper body if it will not badge for tomorrow. And maybe remove the whole caliper and work on it in a vise. Any suggestion?

    Thanks for your help.

    Are you sure it's seized? Cheater bars work great, or just wack the wrench with a bigger wrench.

    Thanks for your response, It is not the slider pin. There are two pins(they are called pad pins) that go through the caliper body and the ones that hold the retainer spring. I am trying to punch the pin out and will not badge. I do not want to bevelle the flat end as it might not go through the caliper. Like I said, I soaked it with penetrating oil and plan to work again tomorrow. I will probably be forced to wack it really good as they really need to be replaced. I am just trying to get an idea if some have dealt with similar pin.
