omg so i got new rotors......brembo and i installed the front no problem then i went to the back, i started on the caliper getting it unscrewed i got the bottom bolt out *those bolts are on there soooo tight* and i put the socket in the top one and it kept on falling out....so i'm thinking it should be the same.....so i took a mirror and looked at it and the guy before me rounded off the bolt all the way around.....the socket barely fits in there OMG POS POS POS what am i to do.....

You might want to try vice grip pliers or if you can't grip it with those, then the next step is to get a tool called an EZ Out Bolt and Stud Extractor. I would also suggest squirting penetrating oil on the bolt before trying these removal methods. Naturally, you would have to replace the bolt with a new one. ;)

i don't think the pliers will do because these bolts are extremely tight i tried pulling with my whole body pulling upward on the bottom bolt and it was just a !Removed! to loosen, the special sockets sound good but it's like......extremely hard to get to or get a socket in there....it's a 97 es and it's the rear caliper top bolt.....i removed the bracket holding the brake line which is in the way but there's other stuff in the way too but overall it's a tight spot =/ i'll see what i can do
