So we have a look at my brakes. Front brakes are pretty standard stuff. However, the rear caliper only seems to have a bolt on the bottom, and some kind of spring loaded pin on the top, which doesn't seem to be removable... no hex head, no allen screw. So my friend disconnected a bunch of stuff, and got the caliper to the point where it could swing upward. However, it still doesn't swing far enough to allow clearance for the rotor to be removed. What's the trick here?

there is a metal clip that holding the hose that attaches to the caliper you need to kinda bend the clip up so there be more Clarence to move the caliper up. its not same as in the video.

On my 01' 3.5 V6 rear brakes n rotors were quite differant. Reading this is telling me that last time they were worked on, not all bolts were returned. Only issue that mine had was the inner sheild guard was touching rotor. When rollin under 20mph could hear rough rub alot like brakes worn. If I was nt the one who maintained them, would of definately thought they needed it.
