Default Removing Front Brake Calipers

Hey Guy's

I'm trying to remove the front brake calipers on a 2000 A8 Qauttro, i used a T45 tourk reach for the rear calipers but that wont work on the front one's.

Any help would be great, thanks guy's

Well I'm not supprised it's hard seeing as how it is a 2000. On my 97 I think the stock calipers were still on the car. I had to use a 5 ft breaker bar with all my weight jumping on it just to break the drivers side loose. Once they broke loose it was as simple as a normal break job. Good luck.
