Had a look at replacing the rear brake pads on my 2016 model only to find I need an E13 Torx socket for the 2 caliper bolts which apparently doesn't exist.

Has anyone done this job and found a way around the problem?

Thank you
John

No there isn't an E13 socket in that set.

Done the job now thanks.

Are you sure it was an E13 and not just a rusty E12?

I've done mine on a DS4 (B7) and had no funny sizes.

Couldn't get an E12 socket on and the E14 appeared really slack like you could throw it on. I found a youtube video where a guy was using an E14 to undo them so I tried it half expecting it to round the head off.
Fortunately they weren't too tight and it worked.

Replaced the discs as well so all's good now.
