Help, so ive got the rear caliper off, removed the split pin but the pin that runs right through that you are supposed to take out wont budge, so the question is, does it just pull out or does it unscrew out, its defo not an alan key type if this all makes sense, I'm struggling to get a grip on it now with the long nosed pliers, ive lubricated it up to hell.

Most pad pins either screw out and would have some kind of tool head on it ie Allen key or a slot for a screwdriver head, if not it could be a pin with perhaps a split pin through it at the far end, but it this case there should be movement in the pin for it to be removed.
Hope that helps 😁

My calipers have got pins and r clips.

My pins just pull out, bit if they are really stuck some have to drill through the caliper to the pin, then you can knock the pin out, only needs to be a 1.5mm drill bit or so, just enough to get something though there to knock it trough!
