    You need a small punch slightly less in dia than the pin.
    Punch the pin out from the near side of the caliper, you will be able to grab the pin with your fingers from the rear of the caliper and wiggle it free.

    use a concave headed punch, this stops it slipping off and chipping your nice red paint. you can't mess about with it. give it a good whack and it will move :thumb:
