Re: Replacing Kangoo brakes

Well as I prophesised it's all gone pear shaped! Tried rapping the hub where the bolts are, tried a slim metal rod to insert into the bolt to shock it with a hammer blow or two. Rock solid, so much so that even the T40 tool won't budge it, all that did was to strip the torx fixing in the bolt!!! Tried heating with a blow torch and some top quality bolt extractors. I think not only are these bolts overtightened they have used a thread sealant. This car is a total waste of space. It will get it's CT (French MOT) next March then it is going. You need more than 18 months on a French CT to sell a car.
