Default Euro car parts

They sell single brakes disc - who in their right mind would replace just one disk?

But there is a note to say they should be changed as a pair.....suspect it's to have a good headline price

Not going to bother with ecp - I'm going mintex brake set.

Noticed that the caliper carrier on later 307's is held on by hollow torx bit bolts. Peugeot trying to stop the normal punter from servicing their brakes.

My local motor factor stocks the Male Torx socket (27mm if I remember correctly) but you will need a long pull bar probably using a tube as an extension as the bolts are very tight and locked in place with loctite.

Ford in the 70's 80's changed the Torx bolts on different cylinder heads in the Pinto range about three times was annoying at the time to start stripping down and find you needed a different Torx bit So soon purchased a full kit of those also

Ta for the info.

I checked my carriers - they use normal bolts - so a standard socket set will work.

Couldn't be bothered to wait so ended up going to an ecp shop and buying their own brand (Eicher) discs and pads - probably made in China - look to be of good quality. Well, at least better than the rusty crisps that are currently being used to stop the car.

Cars only done 156k and I have to change the front discs.
