Brake rotor retaining bolt
 
What is the Torx size of the bolts that hold the brake rotors to the hubs?
Is it even a Torx drive? I haven't looked at it yet.
Thanks!

On other BMWs it is a hex (allen). I'd order spares just in case it strips. If it does strip just drill the head off, remove the rotor, and grab the 'now exposed' threads with a vicegrips.

Typically the rotor bolts use a 5 or 6mm hex head. I apply anti-seize on them upon re-installation.

I just assumed it was a Torx because that's what's on my Mini.
They came out with no issues.

Now, does anyone know how to reset the brake pad warning?
