Default 02 civic, disk brake pin bolts

My first time changing pads on a honda. have the manual, which says
to remove the bottom pin bolt and rotate the caliper up. The bolt is
very difficult and even after loosening a couple of turns with a
breaker bar is still very stiff. I am worried about damaging it. Are
these bolts the type that are hard to turn for the whole thread
pattern? the manual says they should only be tighted to 25 ft-lbs.
It is taking a lot more than that to turn these bolts.

did you squirt them with wd-40? they should loosen up some with that.
no they dont have a tight fit for the full rotation of the bolt, once
it breaks loose they should be quite easy to turn. You sure you
loosened the correct bolt?

Louis,

the bolt you should be removing is #19 in this diagram.

thanks ... I think I was misinterpretting the manual and trying to
loosen #18, which has the rubber boot on it.

Have I got #18 identified properly in the attached photo?

Hmmm, I would choose #15 as bolt #19 holds the caliper jail onto the
steering knuckle and there's no need to completely remove the calipers if
the OP is just changing the pads.

Hope you got everything settled Louis. I just changed my brakes in my
1993 Civic, so it was probably tighter than yours, but it should come
off. Make sure you just remove the bottom screw in the back of the
caliper. Once that is gone, then I would suggest bleeding the brakes a
little, and push the caliper up. It is quite quick to do, and once your
done with one the other one is a breese.

This was my first time doing mine, and it took me a while to figure
what to do, but after I did the first one. I removed the wheel, pushed
up the caliper, and installed the new brakes in about 10 minutes.
