Hi guys today i noticed the rear pads were low on my EB so naturally i attempted to replace the pads. What has happened is when i was bolting the caliper back onto the car as i was tightening the bolt it has stripped the inside thread on the part of the car it mounts on. It was fixed a while ago with a Heli coil but has stuffed up again. Can that piece of the car the caliper bolts to be easily unbolted and replaced? :evil: . Any advise guys is appreciated. My weekend has been nothing but disaster :evil: .

Cheers,
Shaun.

Great thanks Elf.
Back to Pick and pay less soon. At the moment the bolt hardly tightens so i want to fix it properly. Luckily the top one is OK.
