    You need a female torx socket - and you could read the How2

    No torx socket required as you do not have to remove the caliper carrier. All you need is 7mm hex key to remove the the caliper and a 13mm socket to undo the hydraulic pipe. Did mine yesterday. HTH

    thanks for the replies, I will also be doing the the disks and pads at the same time. There is a note attached to the calliper saying ensure it is set up correctly before moving the handbrake attachment (with max gap of 1mm). as for the how 2 I must have missed the one about replacing and setting a rear calliper. I will double check any way.
    cheers.
