I'm going to take some guesses as to what your describing............
The caliper is held on by two bolts screwed into the slider pins? Right? You
managed to get one off but the second is stuck, right?
These bolts come with a locking medium already on them, and it works. It is
usual to break these bolts when changing calipers, so I advise having a set
of new slider pins and bolts from your dealer standing by. I have tried to
removed the broken stud from a pin...... and it isn't worth it.
Do you think I am describing what your talking about?
