remove the dust boot if possible and then use some rust penetrant and keep tapping on the housing while trying to get the pin twisting and turning. If it's is really bad you might drill a small hole into the housing, reseal it with epoxy later, and get some Blaster penetrating fluid in that way.
The problem with really bad corrosion is, after cleaning it all out there might be too much slack around the pin and the setup will wiggle when you step on the brake.

I heat the bad ones up with the torch to get em out. You'll need a new boot if you do that.
