if so peel back the rubber sleeve and put a pair of vise grips on the bolt and take it out then get a new one.
Thank's for the quick reply, my caliper has 2 bolts covered by a plastic cap. I can get the bolts out but I can't get the lower one screwed back in since I stripped the hole somehow. I swapped the bolts to see if it was the bolt or the hole which had a problem and both of them cannot be tightened anymore so I gess I stripped the hole somehow... Any ideas ?
