Can't seem to get the bolt loose that holds the pads in the caliper.
Thus far I've tried soaking in WD-40 and Liquid Wrench.
I applied just a bit of heat with a propane torch. (not a lot of heat)
Then I used an impact allen socket.
Still can't get that bolt to budge.
Any suggestions???

The link below is not my caliper. Just using it to show the bolt in question.

Cannot think of anything else. If you are willing to sacrifice all the rubber parts, and a repaint job, heat it up more. Also, use a good allen wrench, and do the heat up process a few times, allowing the hot liquid wrench to work in between.

HOpe this helps.

There is a spring in there putting pressure on the pads. Push up on the pads and see if that helps. Maybe a little late. Hopefully you got it.
