Sometimes they use a T-50 torx bit, and sometimes they use either a 15mm or 18mm bolt, however the caliper bracket is a 21mm bolt

What tooks do you need to take off calipers


Two bolts hold the capliper solid in the caliper bracket that is fitted on the wheel hub. Just find the right size wrench for those two bolts (possibly 10 mm), remove them, and the caliper is free except for the brake hose leading to it. If removing completely from the car, remove the brake line at the union fitting, then unscrew it from the caliper.

I need to know the size tool to use to remove the caliper bolts on the back brakes on a 2002 VW Jetta wagon TDI - standard star sizes are not working.


They are Torx heads on the calibers, the parts store sells them in a 4-pack for German cars. You will need a special tool to retract the caliper pistons also.

How to replace brakes on 2002 BMW X5 4.4liter...does the hub come off in one piece.....or doesi it have to be seperated? Thanks, Gene


Rear brakes or Front Brakes? Once the rear drums are removed you have access to all the brake parts for the rear brakes. As far as the front pads are concernedonce you remove teh wheel you ahve access to the caliper assembly which is removed by loosening the two retaining bolts on the back side of the caliper and it lifts off to remove and replace the pads themselves then goes right back on. You will need an Allen Wrench of the proper size to remove the retaining bolts, a caliper compressor to do the front brakes. To remove the rear brakes once the drum is removed you have to use a brake repair tool or a large Flat head screwdriver and a large pair of needle nose pliers. The initial retaining clips for the rear brakes can be removed by grasping the exposed end and turning 90 degrees then use the screwdriver to stretch and leverage off the spring assemblies that operate the brakes.

Brakes


Sockets, Ratchet, C-clamp.
Remove the wheel, remove bolt at top of caliper (will be on the back, not the one that mounts the caliper to the hub, it will hold the 2 halves of the caliper together),  the caliper should then slide out freely using the lower bolt as a hinge.  remove the old pads and use a C-clamp to compress the caliper piston (they also make a special tool but a clamp works fine).  Put the new pads on and bolt it back up.  easy as pie!  Be sure to pump the brakes a few times once it's all done to push the caliper piston back up to the pads otherwise they wont work the first few times.  :-P let me know if there are any more questions.
