Sounds frozen. You can remove the rubber boot. It's only pressed in. The pin it holds should move freely. If the boot is torn this could introduce contamination that will prevent the pin from sliding.

If it's this hard to remove, if I were you... Disconnect the brake line at the caliper. Press the pistons in by pushing on the pads with a flat blade. When you finally get the caliper apart, carefully clean around the pistons don't scratch them up. When everything is really clean, use a very small amount of anti seize on the pins, the kind that is made for brakes. Clean the rubber boot with a qtip and put some anti seize on the pin. Push the boot back into the hole fingers only, no tools. Replace the crush washer when you put the brake line back on. Use a torque wrench on the banjo bolt.


Good luck.
