    2005 4runner sport. I'm trying to open up the inside caliper on the front passenger with a 3 inch Bessy C clamp on the end wings of the pad. The outside caliper opened up fine, but the inside won't seem to budge. I opened up the bleeder valve to see if that might reduce pressure. Suggestions?

    Get "2" new (not rebuilt) calipers off Amazon.com: AutoShack BC30150PR Front Brake Caliper Pair 2 Pieces Fits Driver and Passenger Side: Automotive. Calipers sometimes can't be rebuilt by owners or mechanics - even good ones. Only professionals like Cardone. Once they stick they are worthless, IMO.

    Ok. That's what I was thinking. I replaced the other one anyway.

    Even when I got the caliper off I could not budge it. Got the new caliper.

    Thanks!
