    Unhappy Urgent help needed RE: Rear brakes

    HI,

    Im in the middle of changing my rear disks and pads (standard set from the dealer) but ive got a problem...

    Ive got the front part of the caliper off OK, but i cant get the 2 bolts at the back part off. They are like Torx bolts but the opposite way around. Ive tried using normal sockets and spanners but niether budge it at all.

    Is there a special tool needed for this? If not how the hell can I get these bolts off!?!

    Thanks

    Ive got a 2.2 direct estate. Cheers

    cheers - This place is really helpful! I might pop down to halfords in a sec and see if they've got a set, theres one just up the road from me.

    Apparantly its an M12 Torx socket does that sound right? One of my mates has got one but its in his tool tray at work which is closed off today...
