Hi there,

Hope someone can help me.
Need to change front brake pads on a Punto Selecta (1999 T). Got the wheel off to have a look. The guide bolts on the caliper seem to be 7mm Allen bolts. Am I right that I have to take these off to take off the caliper ?. The pads are the "large" ones.

Cheers

Thanks, I did expect to see this pin (as indicated in the Haynes manual), but I can't see it. It does not look like the picture. There is a big spring clip on the side but no pin at the bottom. Note, I Think this is 16Valve model with bigger brake pads.

So I do need to extract these guide bolts ? They are very tight ! Seems like alot of force to put on a 7mm Allen.
