I've been trying to slide the caliper off the rotor but it just won't clear it. I've removed the caliper bolt, the spring, and the pads. Shouldn't it just slide off freely? Is there something I'm missing?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

The blue: How much caliper is left to clear the rotor.
The red: There isn't anymore room for downward rotation because the caliper is stopped by the rotor.

The bottom is just a sliding pin, not a bolt. Remove the rotor and it will come right off.

I just removed the sliding pin (allen head) and it did the trick.
Thanks again!
