Grrr,
Bloody brake pad pin covers!!!
Mine wouldn't budge so after carfully following the advice on hitting it with a bloody great hammer and boiling it alive I had to break out the power tools.
Drilled out the little bugger and got to work with a screw extractor, which ended up cracking the pin cover but took the thread and a section of the caliper casing with it!

I think it must have been welded on in the first place or someone had been a bit enthustiastic with the locktite. Going to replace the pins with these

which should eliminate the need for the stupid covers in the future.

good idea keep a nice dose of copper slip on those threads to keep these gremlins away:thumbup:
