    Hi Guys,

    I have trawled the recent threads for an answer to my question but no joy so here goes.

    Just replaced the discs and pads on my A3 only to find that where the calliper bolts on to the carrier one of the sliding bolts is seized.
    I have ordered the new carrier which will be here tomorrow but I have never replaced one of these and wondered if anyone could let me know what's involved and what tools I will need?

    Is it just removal of the two bolts and replace the carrier or is there a lot more to it than that?

    Any help and/or pictures from anyone who has done the job recently would be greatly appreciated.

    Ta.
