Question about 1991 Mazda MX-5
The left rear brake caliper nonheaded bolt or pin has either pulled out or broken off- not sure which yet. It is only attached by the headed bolt on the ''bottom'' part of the caliper. Is that part number H15025- brake caliper bolt/pin listed on autozone site for 5.99? What is the best way to screw that thing in or get the old one out when there is no way to grip it and no place for a wrench? If it did break, what is best way to get broken part out as it is not flush and would rather not drill and rethread?
If the guide pin is broken then the easiest way is to weld a nut to the rest of the pin. this way you can use a socket/andor wrench to remove it. trying to drill it out is quite difficult and often times leads to ruining the threads and having to drill an over size hole and heli-coil it. with welding a nut on it also heats the surrounding metal an helps loosen the pin that is rusted in. i have done this coutless times always with success.

Removal & Installation
NOTE Using a brake pedal holding tool, depress the brake pedal past its first inch of travel and hold it in this position. This will isolate the master cylinder from the hydraulic brake system and will not allow brake fluid to drain out of the reservoir while the brake lines are open.
