i tried undoing the mounting bolt but that doesn't actually seem to come out, much as i turn it just gets a bit loose and rotates with the brake cover bolt...
Could you try and upload some photos?
As for the bolt, it might be unthreaded but leaving at an angle to where it wont remove. Try grabbing it with a pair of needle nose pliers
thanks, will try that.
i was trying to upload a photo but kept getting stymied by the file restrictions, i think i have that sorted now though
