Rear Pad Change

Recommended Posts

OK so one of my rear pads has failed and I need to replace them.

Easy job I thought.

The 6mm Hex bolt is stuck so tight I've turned 1 allen key into a spiral :foul:and broken a 6mm extension for my ratchet.:thumbsup:

Can't even begin to think how tight the flat blade screw for the pads is gonna be.

Can anyone help?:ride:

Any little tips or tricks to get these litte feckers out?

Steel plug in an aluminum body,, It has sized in place.

Little heat and you can try a impact driver. the shock will normally get it to come free. After that a left hand drill bit does wonders on things like this.
