Brembo brakes pins

I have just had a pretty traumatic experience replacing my front pads! The pins didn't simply move with a slight tap with a pin punch. After a few attempts to remove them with force , no good but there was some bounce from the disc assembly as the car was jacked up . So with that after lots of swearing we reluctantly put the wheel back on and with the weight on we had another go. Hey presto the pins began to move but they needed more than a slight tap.
On removal of the pins they had been super glued in, this had been done from new as the pads only now needed replacement.
Any just thought I'd that..... And now my driver side window doesn't work or it does but an inch at a time
