Malibu Front Brakes

I tried to remove the caliper pins from a 2003 Malibu and couldn't get them off. I unscrewed them as I always have on other cars but they wouldn't come out of the caliper. Does anyone know how to get these bolts out so I can change these brakes?

I use needle nose vise grips. If you look between the caliper and the caliper bracket, you will see the slider nuts are spinning as you attempt to loosed the bolts. Clamp the vise grips to those 'nuts' and then loosen/remove the bolts.

Yeah that's a common thing with some braking systems that the back side of the bolt moves too. I know on some hondas I had to take a 19mm Wrench to the back bolt while using a 12mm for the front.
