I had the problem with the left one.
Afterwards, very carefully, tried to unscrew the right one and... worn...

i did it!!!

Thank you very much!

The key was the size of torcx: 10

I will try a trick to avoid rubber slippage: brushing with talcum powder. ;-)

I ordered some from my LBS but I was told they are on back orders at Shimano. I know why!

I wish we could buy a similar one somewhere else.

found sjs cycles on google, but shows : 'more stock due in 28/03/2018'
I just mailed some local shops, hope one of them can get a replacement faster...
