05 Brake Caliper Removal

What's the trick to removing front caliper? Got the wheel off and the top slider pin is seized. Removed the top and bottom bolts, but I still can't get caliper off. What am I missing? Thanks in advance.

are u sure you pulled the right bolts ? I know there is a set that confuses some folks in the same area or that may Be the rear caliper ?

if the rotor is grooved you may need to pry the caliper open a bit

Thanks Z,
I pulled the right two bolts. The caliper seems to be hung up on something. I pulled the line bolt off too. Still won't come off. I'm sure it's something stupid that I'm missing.

dont be afraid to use a hammer and tap around it.. They dont want to come loose from the rotor. Hit on the outside part where the bolts go in at..

i don't mean to revive such an old thread here but you have to be careful when prying off the calipers without compressing them first. some of the pads have these stupid pins on it and when you pry them off they tear apart the pistons on the caliper... learned that $200 lesson the hard way...
