Hello

I wonder if anyone can help/guide me with a problem i have, the figure below shows a free body diagram of a brake caliper, the force on the body acts at 30 degrees from the horizontal at point C, I resolved this to get the two forces shown in the x and y direction.

I have determined the values for v1 and v2 but i cannot decide how to get the values for h1 and h2, they cannot be the same due to the direction of the force. The problem appears to be statically indeterminant so is there another way i could solve this problem?

Any suggestions appreciated
