Hello,

I have been looking at adjusting my handbrake starting at the shoes.

I can get the caliper off and pads out but I haven't got anything that fits the caliper hanger bolts to get the discs off,it looks like a large female torx type head.

Its a 2008 Relay.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Carl

Best thing would be to get an imprint of the caliper carrier bolt head on a bit of paper and then taking it to Halfords or similar to get the right size torx bit. Oddly though the Citroen service box procedures only show normal hex bolts and that new ones should be used precoated with loctite and done up to 160 Nm, so tight. If you do go for new bolts then buy them first from Citroen and then you can take them to Halfords to get the right size bit. The caliper bolts are 30 Nm.

Thanks for the reply,

 

I was a bit surprised when I saw the bolt heads,i can usually get most things undone but was alittle pi55ed when I had to put my wheel back on after being defeated.

looks like I will be looking for a big blob of blue tac or similar to get a print.

Might call at Citroen first and see what they have to say.

 

Thanks for your help.
