After looking at the caliper attachment bolts(?) with a mirror and a flashlight, I realized that I needed a Allen attachment. Obtained a 7mm Allen socket tool which fit perfectly. Job was done in 30 minutes.

Don't know what would have happened if I had used a Torx fitting. Expect that it would have just slipped as though I had stripped the Bolt.

in order to remove the rear caliper, you first remove the parking brake cable using a 14mm socket to remove the bolt. After removing the parking brake you can remove the caliper carrier, using a 17mm socket to remove the two caliper carrier bols this allows you to remove the caliper from the rear rotor, you can slide the caliper off of the carrier to remove it completely. to remove the rotor you can use a soft faced mallet and gently tap the inside of it and it should come right off.
