    Default 1.9CDTI front brakes

    Has anyone out there changed the front pads and discs on a 1.9CDTI. It all looks different to the GSI brakes described in the How To section. There are 2 Torx headed bolts to split the moving part of the caliper casting: is removing these sufficient to change pads and discs or do you need to remove the whole caliper which looks like it is held on by 3 spline headed bolts, one of which is too tight to the CV joint to get a socket on! Any advice appreciated.

    there are two 7mm allen key bolts on the back of the caliper, hidden behind some plastic plugs in the end of rubber tubes...under no circumstances touch the spline headed bolts... flip off the plastic caps, and the head of the slider is down the rubber tube...remove the 2 bolts and the anti rattle clip on the outside of the caliper.. off it comes..
