HI. I am wanting to change front brake discs on my 2002 diesel C3.
Can anyone tell me the torx size that keeps the disc on?

Thanks :)

Hi pdk20030, I don't expect an answer to your question in good time because I would imagine most people doing this sort of maintenance have a set of torx bits (Like this one from Amazon) and there is no need to note or remember what size it was.

Its going to be around the T30/T40 area, but I don't remember and won't be having a wheel off to check, sorry.


If you need to get the discs, there is our forum discount code you can use at Euro Car Parts.com (click here), enter your reg to get the right disc (there are 2 different sizes) and use the code C3OWNER at the checkout stage ;)
