Going to replace my brake pads on my 1.4 2009 titanium. Do they still recquire the 7mm allen key or have the screws been replaced by bolts. Only asking because my replacement pads come with 4 bolts. Thanks. http://www.ebay.co.u...984.m1438.l2649

The replacement bolts hold the pins in place to the piston assembly. You have to remove them to lift away the piston assembly to reveal the pads and shims.

It's a 13mm bolt tht holds th calliper to the calliper carrier so undo the 2 13mm bolts and lift th calliper off to get to the pads
