Can anybody hell I have a 2009 GTR R35, I was driving along when I heard some serious noise coming from the front of the car. After pulling over and inspecting the passenger side front wheel I noticed a pin had snapped and was hanging out of the calliper. In a nut shell damaging every spoke on the wheel. I have golden callipers and it one of the 2 black pins that attach to the in and outer calliper. Can these be replaced without buying a whole new calliper if so could anybody give me a parts number, or any idea what so ever how I can sort this problem. Cheers Jason.

Hi Jason, you can buy just the pins/rods.

Check the part number here: https://www.nissanpartsdeal.com/parts-list/2009-nissan-gt_r/brake/front_brake.html

And then order from Nissan or try 'nissan genuine' who can source the parts usually at a discount (though small discount normally).

Which pins, there are 4 , 2 are bolted in and slide out toward the wheel and 2 are press fit and come out away from wheel toward inner arch, the only way a 'pin' could come out is it has snapped caliper side of its little sprung end and worked its way right through the caliper, never seen that happen ever.

Right so as I thought its not a caliper 'pin' its the caliper 'brace' to hold the caliper rigid, the ironic things is they more often than not are almost impossible to get out, has it had pads fitted? if so the 12mm bolt inside the caliper was not done up tight enough and they should always be loctited, I prefer to remove the caliper and fit pads leaving those alone.

Hello Herman, yes I was flying along and hit a pot hole I’d heard a rattling noise very loud like gears crunching, every spike on the alloy has been chipped not bad though. I noticed it quite quick so didn’t drive far just home. Could only happen to me that.
Cheers Jason.

The nut on the other side of the caliper must have been either left off or not done up, when were the pads last changed?

Hello Barry P the person who I bought it off 4 months ago had serviced the breaks himself he was a mechanic 😂. So are the replacement ones just a simple job to replace.
Cheers Jason.

I am wondering of the damage to the wheel might screw up the balance? Hopefully too insignificant dmg but might to at least ask a pro.

If it was mine I’d definitely wet and dry it smooth and re paint it so no water/salt gets underneath the paint stopping it corroding at all, same on the callipers 👍👍
