Guidance required: before I start work, are the guide pins accessible without removing the caliper itself?
(For lubrication of pin and boot).

thanks

You could apply a dash of spray lube under the boot or on the ends of the boot so that it does not stick to the bolt and get torn when being rotated

Disc itself looks in a poor state, something leaking (staining on the inner side?)
Are your implying the calliper has seized ( uneven pad wear)? Then both slider pins need to come out. :(
The only way you are going to successfully clean & lubricate is to remove the calliper. I would also be checking the disc & pads for needing to change.

... removed without taking the caliper apart?
The guide rod bolts/ pins are what hold the caliper to the pad carrier bracket. What looks like a 13mm hex bolt head will be the pin itself.
Ceramic brake component grease functions well.

I guess you are disassembling to replace pads and disk, your hi resolution photo shows that they are well worn

Well from context it seems that the OP is not attempting to replace pads/disc, since to do so will require removal of the caliper and that is someting which the OP is seeking to avoid.

To the OP: I agree with those who have opined that the disc and probably the pads are approaching their last. Removing the caliper is nbd anyway.
