So as the title goes, I stipped the Torx head for one of the bolts to the parking break actuator. This needs to be removed in order to ease off the parking break and thus, compress the piston so it fits over the new pads. Any tips on what to do next? I tried (very gently) to compress the piston anyway, but no dice and I didn't want to force it. I put the old pads back on and didn't even attempt side #2. Is it dealer/indy time? Any tips/trick to removing those? Here is a photo (complements of Bavauto youtube page) of the bolt that I messed up. It's normally a T30 that fits, but mine is now mostly rounded off on the inside.
