    As per title.Is it a 7mm allenkey or is it a torx bit(and if so,what size torx)?
    Car is a 96 1.8T with the 288mm discs.Wanting to change discs and pads this weekend but not sure I've got the correct tools.

    Thanks!

    I concur, did mine the other day. Phoned work to say I would be late as brakes had gone and needed sorting, rolled in an hour later much to their disbelief as they assumed I wouln't be in. Why do people think changing a set of pads is close to witchcraft? lol

    Thanks guys.Felt a right lazy arse for asking but time to work on the car is very limited at the moment.Commute to work and that's it,not even washed it in months!
