    Evening all,

    I wonder if you can help i am looking for the size of the allen key required to remove the allen bolts which hold the carriers on an A3 TDI Quattro.

    According to ETKA they are M12 which require 10mm allen keys but having tried this they are too small could someone give a definite size as im gunna go and buy a 12mm in the morning to give that a go.

    car spec
    A3 TDI Quattro 170 with 286mm rear discs brake code 1kj


    Help is appreciated as always

    Chilly

    It's not an Allen key it's spline bits not sure exactly of size.

    Halfords kit is brilliant, 7 splines for about £25 job done, ours have been faultless.
