Default BRAKES

HI!
I am new to doing my brakes I have a 2000 SE I removed the 2 caliper bolts but it will not remove...is there a third bolt holding it in that I am missing? I tried taping it with a hammer but that did nothing either..I don't want to hit it 2 hard and bust something..I know once I learn this it will be a cinch but I cant change the pads without it being removed... TIA

Shane

Try putting a large C clamp around the caliper and the outer pad. Compress it some, and it should help. Instructions are here.
