Hey guys, I am trying to replace my rear brakes and rotors but am having a hard figuring out how to get the rear calipers off. There is a 14mm bolt at the bottom that has no clearance for any kind of socket I can find and wrench will not grab the bolt because of a shield that is in place. What do I have to do to get these off? Thanks.

it requires a few extensions on the socket and some snaking through the suspension links. for one of the bolts, you have to go through a hole in the trailing arm. You may need to jack up the trailing arm slightly to line up the hole with the bolt so the socket will go on straight.

Hmm... I don't recall seeing any kind of pass through near the bolt the last few times I had it up. I'll look again next chance I get. Thanks.

EDIT: Let me clarify, I see the pass through for the top bolt but not the bottom bolt. Thanks.
