    Got a brake problem :-)

    Hi all

    I have a 1999 Astra 1.6 and I have not long had the car and have just done a brake disc and pads change myself as the other disc's were in a right state.

    I have a problem with one of the two bolts that hold the caliper on, when tightening up with hardly any force it just spun over and now just spins in the screw hole and can not get it out.

    what is the best course of action do you think is best now, is it a new hub carrier that the calliper bolts on to? if that is the case are they a pain to change?

    thanks in advance for your help

    Depending how bad it is, you could drill and tap the bolts out
    other wise its drill them out and replace.

    If you have to replace the carrier then its quite a big job, with loads of stripping down.
