    Default

    E18 female Torx socket for undoing the caliper carrier bolts, and extension bar for the wrench or ratchet you use the E18 with, hammer to persuade the disks to come off, 7mm allen key, copperslip grease for the hub and slide pins, possibly brake cleaner if the disks have protective grease on them (many don't nowadays).

    Default

    7mm allen key, screwdriver to remove the spring clip, wind back tool and adaptor, wire brush, copper grease, rag to clean up the slides, Torx socket for the caliper carrier. About all I can think off bud.

    Edit; are the discs held on with an allen bolt too, like the front?
