Sheared Off Brake Guide Pin – Dangerous?

Sheared Off Brake Guide Pin

MVS Volvo Forums member jreed talks us through drilling out a sheared-off brake guide pin:

Thanks to all the good info here on the site the job went pretty well, until near the very end I overtightened one of the guide pins that attaches the rotor to the hub, shearing it off.

I was using a torque wrench set to the 6 ft-lb specification, but I used a 3/8″ drive 5-80 ft-lb wrench, which is right at the lower end of its range — probably not accurate… I probably should have been using my 1/4″ drive 20-200 in-pound (1.6 – 16 ft-lb) wrench instead. Lesson learned.
