    Hi everyone,

    I am currently trying to change my front discs, but having an issue,

    I am trying to remove the calliper mounting bracket bolts so I can remove the calliper, but they are very stubborn,

    I have tried knocking them first and i don't have an impact wrench. :(.

    Also I am working from the ground so I'm finding it very difficult to get a long arm in!:(.

    am I missing something, are they left hand thread?

    Is there anything I can do?

    All help will be VERY much appreciated.

    Cheers,

    Josh

    I've used a breaker bar too, try and turn the steering so the caliper is easier to get too if you havent already, they can be dam tight but should come undone....

    Got it sorted and done, thanks for all the help. They where so tight! I eventually had to 'shock' them out with a big hammer. :)
