They usually don;t go bad when they are inside a rubber boot like that, it's the ones without a rubber boost that rust/corrode over time when they are not lubed properly.

Not the worst job in the world, can be more difficult if the pin is siezed or stuck in the caliper. I would buy the rebuild kit for both sides and just do them both at once if they are bad. Best to have the parts on hand when you pull them apart.

Hold the flat sides of the guide pin while you loosen and remove the bolt from the guide pin. That bolt holds the calipier to calipier bracket.
I think the guide pin is held in by the rubber boot. Just pull the rubber boot off one side and slide the pin out.



Don't see how the guide pin would be make that noise. but it would not hurt to replace them.

I thought so 2 but apparently not... i have every thing else new on that side. CV joint, lower control arm, sway bar and sway bar endlink strut ECT..... and its all been on for over 6 months ( i had a curb incident ) thats the only thing that can be messed up i do have the kit for both sides.. one step a head of you.... well ill let you know if that was the problem....

My front right caliper got stuck on my '99 SE-L. It caused the inner pad to wear down to the backing and severly groove the rotor with almost no warning until the metal-on-metal noise began. Since it was only the inner pad that wore down, it was the slide pins and not the piston sticking in the bore that was the culprit.

I went with AD22VF calipers off a '93 Pulsar NX2000 w/ ABS. Picked up loaded reman ones from Car Parts Warehouse in Cleveland with a pair of Brembo rotors for about $200. Super easy upgrade. I'm still using the stock rubber lines with no problems.
