Does anyone have the part numbers available for front carrier bolts? By the scan, they should be changed, not reused.

Default Trouble removing caliper

Has anyone had trouble removing the caliper (and pads) off the slide pins?

I removed the rear bolts and had the caliper in my hand. However, couldn't figure out any way to free the bottom first, the top first, or both at the same time. It was like one of those mind puzzles made from nails.

Do you free the bottom somehow with force? And then the you can easily undo the top? You shouldn't have to remove a slide pin, right? Those things are sort of a flower shape head anyway.

Thanks in advance for anyone's help. Very frustrating.

I hope your not removing the bolt off the caliper. The only two bolts your suppose to remove when replacing pads are the bolts that are bolted to the heat shield.

Great thread and very informative. I will do this later today on my 2012 Q5.
See this thread regarding the new Wagner/Ferodo pad kit that includes new caliper bolts an sensor wire.

Was able to do this weekend successfully. For some reason, much easier this time around. I think the stock pads that came with the car had "ears" that made removing it extra difficult.

Should just have to remove the two bolts in the back of the disc, and slide the caliper (and the pads) outward.
