Laguna 2 - Snapped anti rattle springs..

Having assembled all the parts to replace the rear discs and pads, wheel off ready to go, found I couldn't get the old anti rattle spring out of the caliper. No amount of force, various tools or WD40 would shift either end. Both ends eventually snapped and I have two stubs of spring stuck in the caliper.

Can anyone advise if the mounting holes go through to the other side/can be punched out? Failing that, could possibly try drilling them out, otherwise looking at new caliper.
