Any body?

Will I have to take all the caliper off as well ?

What size are the 4 bolts holding the hub on that a access from the back and I'm guessing I need deep sockets for this??

Thanks

Also wondering this mate, it looks like the whole lot would have to come off. I'm debating undoing two lower bolts and just fitting some 1.5mm washers in between the hub as would have same effect and wouldn't have to completely take rear apart.... I think...

^^^ using washers :S will the wheel sit right if you do that? Can you not just attach the shims to the disc? Otherwise, remove the stub axle I suppose.

shims to the disc:eek::eek::eek: the wheel will then just wobble as it goes round it needs to be the hub that has the camber not just the wheel !!

but yes i think it does all need to come of i just cant work out what size the 4 bolts are that hold it on at the back, as i dont have a deep socket i think there are three bolts the same size and one odd one ?:S
 
Caliper off and moved out of the way, Hub nut and disc off, then the stub axle bolts are a torx head, with nuts on the back. 3 are one size with 16mm nuts (I think) and the other is a 12mm nut. Undo those and the stub axle will be loose, put shim in and bolt back together....

  Looking for 182
17mm socket and a strong bar for the the calliper bolts
30mm socket and a strong bar for the hub bolt
Screwdriver and hammer might be needed to knock the little bit of metal which helps hold the brake pads in, otherwise you'll not be able to get a socket over the bottom calliper bolts

When I say strong bar, make sure you do have one, as they can be a b**ch to get off if they've not been removed for a while.

Not sure I've got the right end of the stick here, but that's what you're need in order to get the rear discs off. Oh, and possibly some WD40 as well.
