front caliper pin tunring wont' snug

I decided to do my own brakes and I thought tightening the caliper pin extra tight was the smart thing to do, now the pin just spins and spins.

What did I likely damage? the pin? the caliper the bushing? not sue exactly what I need to do to repair this, do I need a whole new caliper.

Everything is put back together drives fin and brakes well but is there a danger to this pin spinning?

Thanks

No idea what you are talking about- I think you mean the sliders but take a picture so it's more clear

i think you do mean the sliders. i think you need to use a backing wrench to hold it in place.
