Immediate help.. Head of bolt broke in caliper - October 7, 2009, 09:45 AM

Well im doing a SIMPLE brake job on my sister in-laws 07 Scion TC. Right in the very beginning, taking the upper bolt off the caliper, the head of the bolt broke off, and now I cant get it out. Any Mechanic playing hookie today think they could come take a look at it and help me out. I need to get this car done ASAP and am in a heap of $h*T now.

What started as a simple brake job has now turned into a nightmare. Thanks

PS, Im in Falls Church, right by arlington.

Ping boomboom929, he's probably out and about today.

Not sure if Nudist is at the shop today or not.

Sounds like you might be in the market for a tap and die set

top or bottom?
If bottom and you can get the top one out you may want to disconnect the brake line and just turn the caliper until it comes off the bolt. Then grab the bolt with a pair of locking pliers and unscrew it.

If this won't work then drilling and using a extractor bit to get it out works great and is pretty easy with the right kit.

Not a bad job and it comes with working on anything aluminum!

Reread and I see it is the top bolt!
