Good afternoon all,

*I did have a photo uploaded but this forum won't let me post ext links? ??? :thumbd: *
If anyone knows how to work around this, kindly educate me :)

I have a couple of questions for those who may be familiar with this process.

-I have removed the caliper and the rear brake pads
-The two carrier bolts arent both accessible (one blocked by hub assembly)
- How do I remove these carrier /allen head bolts?
-The 4 17mm nuts are very tight - what is the best tool to get the nuts loose?

I watched LukaCarMod's video on it (youtube) and his seem to come loose pretty easily.

Any help and advice appreciated.
Nate.

    If anyone wants to combine the below from "postimages.org" and see the photo of the area in question, I'm sure that's okay

    I think I did mine by taking top carrier bolt out then levering on carrier to clear disc.

    Thanks Shadyracer, have coated in WD40 and turned attention to the front for now.... She's only 10 years old but some of these bolts and nuts look older.

    For anyone interested a 10 inch Breaker bar was perfect for this job, just the reight length to get into the arch and have abit of leverage.
    Now stuck on the 2 x 8mm Allen Caliper Carriers and the 1 x 5mm Allen that holds the ABS sensor... All fun and games
