    Snapped one of these behind the plate yesterday! New one on order but what is the best way to remove the old one? Drill it out? Grinder? Would like to avoid removing the whole brake platr if possible. Also, any tips on fitting the new one? Thanks.

    The originals had the stud beaded over to retain the snail cam. Just grind it off; no need to remove the backplate. The new ones are retained by nuts.

    Please could someone tell me where I can get replacement ones of these? I have one that has worn round where you attach
    the spanner.
    I can only find Land Rover ones on the Web, are these any good.
    My other thoughts are Triumph or MG but I have not look into them at the moment.

    after searching the Interweb I found these. Will order a couple and see how they go.
