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.
