    Why don't you just remove the other pin and remove the caliper, remove the bracket and take the broken pin out ? You can remove it with a set of vice grips or worse case drill it out. Pop down the scrappy and take one out of a caliper there.

    Sorry, ignore that, I got thinking of a different set up, ............

    You've snapped number 6 here then, the slider pin......http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts...13&hg=34&fg=10
