Well actually it was stupid me.
Tightening the bolt that holds the caliper keeper/tensioner thingy in place so it doesn't slide out and thought I'd tighten it just a bit more.
Fucker broke right off.
What's the easiest way to fix this?
Should I try bolt extractors (not a very big bolt) or [?]

it shouldnt be too hard to drill and use an extractor on.once the bolt broke off the tension should be off the threaded section.
oh,by the way-you don't want to tighten those too far.

stick a welding rod to the bolt, grab the rod wth pliers and turn it out, should come right out..

I prefer to think of us as a Drinking Club with 4x4 problems !!
