When replacing the brake pads and discs on a 2006 1.3 Suzuki ignis I damaged a bolt which fastens the caliper onto its mounting bracket. The bolt was stuck on and I thought it probably needed replacing. I tried to find a replacement bolt, but ruined the original threading an incorrect nut on.
Now feeling silly, I ordered a set of slide pins with bolts and rubber boots to ensure I had the correct part.
The only reason I'm considering this is that perhaps the threads of the pin got damaged as well as the bolt, and so the pin may need changing too. Should I replace the original (perfectly working) pin with a new one? Or should I assume that if the new bolt threads into the pin okay then there is no problem?
