    I took the road less traveled, and that has made all the difference.

    Do you not have a regular flat headed punch? That's what I plan to use tomorrow.

    Any punch will do really. No need for a special tool, just a steady hand. Get yourself a nice little rubber mallet and a pin punch set like this:

    I just keep my finger on the punch to make sure it doesn't slip off and hit the caliper.

    Yikes re spraying the break cleaner all over the calipers. No worries about damaging the paint on them?

    I don't believe there is anything in brake cleaner that will touch the caliper paint, especially the new 'environment friendly' crap that's being sold. It's the brake fluid you have to watch out for. That is guaranteed to eat through any paint you don't rinse it off of immediately.

    The dimple headed punch is nice because it won’t slip off as easily and damage the paint. I found this “nail setting tool” at Home Depot near the punches and hammers. Cost $2.50. Just make sure you get the 2/32” head or larger since the dimple barely fits over the point on the caliper pin.



    Btw thanks to @SurfCfl for this video. Made the change super easy.
