Pin hanger plug stripped & rear pad question

The rear caliper pin hanger slotted plug won't come out, any advice on a way to remove it. Bad place for a slotted screw.

Also are the Galfer black pads better for the rear brakes? Less likely to lock up maybe?

Penetrating oil like a 50/50 mix of acetone and ATF is one method. Another is an anti corrosion agent like ACF50 or DeOxit. Give them time to work. On the tool end of things, an hand impact wrench is a tool everyone who does their own work should have.

Plan B is to use one of the liquids previously stated and allow time to let it work. Then use a ice pick or similar pointy device to create a dimple at 9 o'clock near the edge of the stuck part. Put the point in the dimple and hold the pick at about a 45 degree upward angle. Tap the pick handle lightly with a hammer until the plug breaks free.

Think I'm screwed, I started slowly and kept getting more creative and ended up with this(see photo) any way to salvage this or am I looking at a caliper $150 replacement stemming from a small slotted cap not coming off, why make this slotted

Do yourself a favor, remove and anti seize this little cap every 8 months or so to avoid this, jeez

Your going to need a drill press and some proper bits to drill that out, get the pieces out of the threads, then a new pin. I think I would go on fleabay and just buy a used rear caliper.

I had this happen recently and tried using a stripped screw extractor with drill but ultimately what worked was cutting a bigger slot with a dremel and using a screw driver after spraying thoroughly. Maybe the extractor would work on your situation

2006 Wee

tried an extractor, thought it would easily back out. Just kept getting worse, hole-keep digging scenario. drill, dremel . cut off hacksaw

What if a try to back out the pin with channel locks, don't care if I damage the pin, may be able to force it through

So buying a used caliper is through ebay is good option.

Does the head of the pin sit on any sort of lip inside the caliper? If it does, you're going to have a hard time unthreading it from the other side, even if most of the head is gone. If I was in your shoes, I would probably try what you're thinking of, since it looks like it might be the last thing that you can try. I would try and cut the pin so you have as much of it as possible still attached to the caliper, and I'd try and file a flat side on each side of the pin. That should give a set of vise grips a better purchase on the pin. And I would soak that thing with something like PB Blaster for about a day. If the head of the pin isn't sitting on some sort of recess in the caliper, I'd take it out from the rear of the caliper with the vise grips. If there is a lip there, then thread it into the caliper from the back side, and hopefully you can thread enough through to be able to grab the pin from the other side and unthread it the rest of the way.
