Got a problem with one of my back ones. Im having it looked at in a few weeks. How do you go about replacing them do you know?

They cannot be replaced without removing the hub assembly as far as I know. Not worth the hassle, a lot of people end up just cutting them off if they fit bigger brakes. Although I opted to modify mine to keep the air scoop.

I replaced them on my old mk1 GS300 without a full dismantle, although
you will need to remove the disc. The main problem is if the little
bolts that hold the shield to the hub ALL shear off. If only one or two
do, you can sort it out as there are still enough left to hold the
replacement shield in place. Take it real slow and careful getting them
off - pre soak with penetrating oil etc and obviously keep oil and stuff
well clear of the discs and pads.



Basically, get the little retaining bolts out. Use some tin snips to cut
through the old shield, with one cut on either side, you can then
easily get the two halves out. In worst case scenario, you can get away
without it, but it is better to have them. For the replacement, cut just
one slot. You can then bend the shield open, i.e. bend each side of the
cut in the opposite direction to each other, you can then wangle it
around and get it in place over the hub. Bend it straight again and fit
the retaining bolts. Once it is all done up, do any final bending to get
the shield straight again. You do end up with a cut in the shield, but a
whole lot less work than a full dismantle.

Depends how much you want to grind to whether the disc/caliper would be in the way. You could grind some off with the disc in situe. I was refering to replacing them and hence disc removal.
