Since you have heated it and ruined the seals and other parts, you can go ahead and use what ever it takes to get it out. You are going to have to replace the caliper.

How do i take the roters off the front so i can replace the brake pads?


after you remove the wheel. 1.remove the two bolts that hold the caliper they are normally 5/16 allen .
2. remove the caliper. ( it helps if you use a flat blade screwdriver too spread the pads.)
if the bracket that holds the caliper interferes with the rotor then remove the two bolts that hold it.

3. if the rotor is stuck to the hub the get a 2X4 and a large hammer. place the wood on the edge of the rotor. hit the wood so you do not mark the rotor . then once it is lose pull it off.

Cant make caliper return so I can replace pads on the rear


The piston has to spin clockwise while keeping light pressure to compress,having the bleeder open at the same time makes it easier.There should be slots or holes in the piston ,you may have to buy a socket to be able to turn the piston.

What is the process for replacing bothmy front brake calipers?


Hello rcvez
Without a model and year I can only give you a general description on how to change chevy calipers.
Jack up the left front and put a stand under it, then remove the wheel. Turn the wheel all the way to the right
On the back of the caliper you'll see 2 female hex bolts(allen head) the size should be 5/16 or 3/8, use a
male hex socket or an allen wrench to remove the bolts, if you use an allen wrench you may have to give
it a couple of wacks with a hammer to loosen them up. Now use a pry bar work the top and bottom of the
caliper and walk it off the roter, set the caliper aside so not to strech the hose. Next, put the new pads in
the new caliper and bolt it up to the bracket, remove the hose from the old caliper and bolt it to the new
caliper, be sure the bolt is clean and use the new copper washer that came with the caliper. Now repeat
this on the right side, bleed the brakes and thats it. Hope this is helpful.

Replace front rotors


For tools you'll need a set of metric sockets and wrenchs pry bar or large screw driver a small to med. hammer, and since you,ll most likly install new pads a C clamp to compress the
caliper piston. Next, chalk the wheels and jack up the side you want to do first and put a stand under it. Once the wheel is off you will see a spring clip across the front of the caliper, remove
the clip, be careful not to bend it. Next remove the 2 caliper mounting bolts(the smaller 2 of the 4) and remove the caliper you may need to use the pry bar to work it back+forth until it's
free. Next, remove the pads and place 1 pad over the caliper piston then use the C clamp(screw end to the pad)to compress
the piston be sure the clamp won't touch the brake hose or fitting. Next remove the 2 bolts holding the caliper mounting bracket and remove. Check the base of the wheel studs for small round clips, if you see any remove them or break them off.
And remove the roter. Reverse the procedure to install the new roter. Repeat the procedure for the other side. Hope this is what you needed to know. Good luck.

How do you get the roters off 06 toyota corola


In order to remove the rotors, the caliper has to be removed first. The caliper is held on with two bolts, these are accessed from the back side. Once the caliper is off, the rotor comes off the axle assembly.

remove the 2 bolts holding the caliper on.then remove caliper.remove pads.you may have to save clips on old pads.now dont let the caliper hang it may hurt the brake line tie it up.once pads are removed open the brake resivoir (where you put the brake fluid).now use a c-clamp to push in the caliper piston(the round part sticking out).once piston is all the way in put new pads on the caliper.don't force pads over roter.line up caliper with the bracket.put bots though the holes and tighten.do both sides and fill up the fluid put cap on.done.no bleeding required.
