Hi guys,
I was trying to lubricate my rear caliper slide pins and ran into some trouble removing the rear pads and caliper. The pads weren't worn down all the way. The inside pad had those clip pins that stick into the caliper piston, which wouldn't let me slide the caliper away from the brake pad bracket. Is there anything I am missing? What's a good way to get that thing out of there? I was trying to loosen the clamp that holes the rubber brake hose down to the bracket, but it wouldn't budge and the bracket started to bend...
I was able to lube the pins anyway, but could use any tips if you have them.

Thanks!

What do you guys normally do for removing the rear brake pads and caliper?

The 2nd video you posted showed a 2007 on a lift and a guy having a tough time like I am having. There doesn't seem to be an easy way to do it.

Those style brakes are quite easy. Pads drop in. Sometimes corrosion makes it a little tougher.

But the biggest mistake make is not using a screw driver between pad an rotor to compress caliper some prior to unbolting and removing caliper.
