Default 2006 Pilot Brake Sliding Pins

Just serviced the pilot brakes for the first time. Noticed that the
inner pad wore faster that outer on passenger's side. Tried to take
out sliding pins. One came out easily. The one with a rubber ring at
the tip took quite some force. It would appear that the rubber ring
has swollen for some reason and it seals the sliding pin hole with
force. Not sure why it did that since the lubrican is the original
from factory (This is my first brake service). I could file down the
rubber, to make it fit more loose, or I could take if off permanently.
Does anyone know what is its purpose?

I would not modify the part. If it is defective, pick up a new one at a
dealer. You really do not want to play amateur development engineer on
your brakes.

Don't delete any parts. (HONDA never puts in anything that's not
necessary).
If the slider pin is corroded and wont' fit, replace it. SEARCH google
(possibly google groups) for 'honda slider pins' and you'll find LOTS of
info. Be sure to use the correct lube or you'll have similar troubles in
the future. See also www.tegger.com for how to fix RUSTY brakes. Your
diagrams and part numbers are at www.slhondaparts.com

Mentioning your location and mileage would be a great help too.
