    Sometimes the disk doesn't want to come off even after the screw is removed - especially if the last time they were replaced the fitter didn't put copper grease on the hub. It could take a good 10 minutes of banging with a hammer for each disk.

    Depending on who last did them they may even have to come off in pieces. Spray wd40 into the bolt holes so that it penatrates down the face of the hub

    I was on about the carrier bolts

    about 1 hour should be long enough as long as the sliders have not seized and you dont have to clean and regrease them
