- Sram Guide R Caliper Mount Bolt
So my caliper is sitting just slightly off which means the disc is not central and it rubs on one of the pads.
I went to centre the caliper but the stupid design of the caliper means I can’t get to the bolt! The bolt is at such an angle it’s not straight.
Suggestions welcome on how to get to the bolt, any specific tools.
Think this pic shows the issue.

Design of that end of the caliper is a complete PITA.
Cheers. Will go pick some up, so guess any torque settings are out lolPosted 1 year ago

You can buy ball end hex sockets if you really want to torque it. I dont know if it would change the effective length being off angle?Posted 1 year ago
Interesting… – was just going to comment that I have never had a problem with mine and now after looking at my caliper I realised I’m missing the the silver spacers altogether on the front brakes. Don’t think they came with them….now I’m perplexed!Posted 1 year ago
I think there are a few different caliper shapes – could be wrong, but I do have teh silver spacers! Will go pick up a set of ball ends after work as local halfords have a set:
