Happy FD - front Caliper sliding pin- Subaru liberty 2010

Not Holden related, but looking for anyone who might be able help another old Holden member.

My partners Subaru liberty 2010 lost a caliber sliding pin sometime over the last week or more. I think the bolt came out when we were driving it around town, I jokingly said oh there goes a bolt but I was hoping perhaps it was something we ran over on the road and flicked up underneath the car. I didn’t see anything moving on the road in the mirror nor notice any particular problem at the time. I had kept driving it around the corner and went into a car park where I heard a big clang, I had a brief look on that side of the car and couldn’t notice anything in particular, but I was in a grumpy mood and wasn’t being particularly observant in my present mind set.

My partner kept driving the vehicle and didn’t tell me about an odd noise issue starting and continuing, which came and went in severity/loudness. This turned out to be due to the caliper swivelling on the top caliper sliding pin and hitting up against the inner mag rim. Which I was a bit stumped about at first while driving it myself. Ended up noticing the bottom of the caliper was riding up against the inner rim, did some bush mechanics with some wire to get home.

That was Friday night just gone and can’t find a caliper slider pin at any of the auto stores or Wreckors. My partner can’t drive a manual, so won’t be able to use my car to get to work.

If anyone has a Subaru liberty 2010 slider pin to suit to help me out today, hit me up. I’m in Melton. Would drive about an hour or so to get one.

The caliper appears to not be damaged, had an old Greek ex-mechanic look at it, will probably take it off and replace when we can find a replacement at decent price.
