Unless you know the shop, don't take them there, unless it is an absolute must! Took mine in once for new tyres, all good, but next time I had to take the front calipers off, all four bolts were shot. Obviously they didn't have a 7mm allen key, so they ground down an 8mm to fit. Butchery, I say. Two of them has to have easyouts applied, to remove. They used to be an "authorised" service centre. Parts were available from Mario, but I was inconvenienced somewhat - didn't need to happen.

Gave them another go later for some spare parts. I listed the parts and descriptions in an email - they didn't know what I was talking about, so sent me a scanned copy of the parts manual with all the parts I needed, listed on it, and instructed me to print, highlight in a yellow colour, scan and send it back to them.

For some silly reason, they were no longer a service shop, shortly after that.

Make sure you loctite them when you put them back on.

Usually I aggree with all you say... but this time... Maintenance book tells me to screw calipers with 50Nm torque. No mentioning of loctite. And mine were not locited when removing them for the 1st time.

I was referring to the rotors.

My caliper bolts didn't have any Loctite either but I put a few drops on them when I re-installed them. I couldn't see the harm and it gave me peace of mind.

For some reason 7mm is often omitted in Allen key sets.  I managed to score a set of 3/8" square drive Allen drivers in 3,4,5,6,7,8,10 sizes, made by Powerbuilt.  I hope I don't come across the need for a 9mm hex!
