Hi..there..

These are the normally the 12X150-36 bolts.. and T55 with 1/2 inch drive should actually fit..alot of citroens /peugeots use the same caliper carrier bolts that use that size T bit to undo them,have done them before myself,and refitting requires a little loctite thread locker.... Have you tried hammering it in..sometimes if they havent been shifted for a very long time build up alot of corrosion and thus it may feel like its not fitting but all its needs is to be lined up with the bolt the T lined up and then hammered in..or take wire brush to them...but you cant really get anything inbetween T50 / T55? as most standard/professional sets only come with those two larger sizes.... Have you the VIN number handy just to see if the bolt size is the same?
