    Default What size socket is used to undo front brake caliper.

    I'm about to change my front brake discs.
    Looking at the two bolts what hold them on, they seem like a torx fitting.
    Will a hex head socket fit these torx heads.
    I know these bolts will be tight and I want to avoid rounding off any heads with an incorrect fitting.
    Do anyone know what size these are?
    Many thanks

    The calliper bolts are E20 torx. Not sure if a normal socket will fit. If they haven’t been off before they will be tight till the bitter end as they have thread lock on

    Thank you very much for replying . I will now need to purchase the appropriate socket/s to complete the job.
    having looked on the screwfix site ,there is no mention of any torx sockets at all.
    Are these available to buy separately or as a complete set?
    many thanks
