single pot rears, hinged or bolted?

Hi can anyone tell me from the photos what type of rear single pot callipers I have as I need to order a new seal kit. Are they bolted or hinged? I think they are bolted but need to make sure they are.

Thanks in advance.

Top bolt/hinge (it felt like a bolt to me)


Bottom Bolt

2 bolts to remove the carrier and another 2 to remove the cradel.

if the bolt at the bottom of the carrier is removed and the one at the top losened it then becomes hinged so as the pads will just slide in..
