Re:


I always tell the tyre shop to not use the rattle gun and to tighten wheel studs by hand (wheel brace).
Always worked and never have they said no.

Re: Brake rotors


I tried yesterday to remove the rear calipers to try & adjust the handbrake, but couldn't get the 17mm bolts to move. How do you guys undo them?
Also a bit confused about the number of bolts to remove. Are there 2 different sets of bolts to take off? Was I trying to undo the correct bolts?
I have read thru the ESR but it is a bit confusing.

Re: Brake rotors


Just 2 bolts not 2 sets. I used a good quality spanner and a hammer to turn the spanner when I did mine. I now have a torque wrench so that would be the preferred method.

Re:


Just a note, don't use a torque spanner to loosen nuts, tighten only.

Re: Brake rotors


I got myself a breaker bar to undo the caliper mounting bolts.
And as Tony says, a torque wrench only for tightening.

And the longer the breaker bar shaft, the easier it is, although you might be working at an angle to clear the wheel arch. I use one regularly for undoing wheel nuts and a torque wrench for resetting.
