Besides soaking it in WD40 or Liquid Wrench for an hour, then whacking
the bolt on the head a few times with a small hammer to break it free, then
using the Torx wrench on the inside, and big Vicegrips on the outside at
the same time? Nope, no other ideas.
i had a 83 mustang and the calipers pins had Locktite on them... it was
from the factory like this.. I also broke and bendt about three bits
trying to get them off... i had to use a propane torch on them and when
heating it up i had the bit in a breaker bar and the weight of the
breaker bar alone started to turn when heat was applied(Loctite is like
a glue that stops the bolt from turning).... and you might want to stop
working for a minute and look at the thing real good and then picture
what way you are turning???? remember the bolts(pins) are on the inside
so you might be tightening them instead of taking them off, pay
attention to the way you are turning, i had this a few times also and
felt like a fool for tightening them up.....
Another recomendation is to get rid of the cheap auto parts store torx sockets
and buy a set that are higher quality. This is speaking from experience. Bought
a set from autozone and I twisted and stripped every socket that came in the
set. Bought a good set of Sears Craftsman torx sockets and I haven't had any
problems since. I'm not saying Craftsman is comparable to SnapOn or Proto, but
just about everyone has quick access to them.
