SOURCE: I have a 2000 Passat and going to have my friend replace the rotors and breaks. I am preparing to fix it but want to know what sizes are the bolts for the calipers sliding pins. If you know the Bolt s

For a wrench or for the acctual bolt size.
To remove front pads..you need 8mm allen socket to pull the caliper guide pins, then 17 or 18mm..To remove rear pads...you need 13mm socket for lock bolt on guide pins and 15mm open end wrench (thin section to hold guide pin while you remove lock bolts..I ground down a spare wrench). You DO NOT have to remove rear carriers to change rotors..just remove lock screw and angle rotor out. The B5 Passats don't have the electronic parking brake so you don't need VAG Com to change pads.
Installation tips:
Clean and regrease the guide pins with "synthetic caliper grease"
Rear lock bolts come with preapplied thread locker and "are not to be reused"..I just wire brush the threads and use some Loctite Blue on em. I smear just a little antisieze on the inside bore of the rotors and on the lock screw threads to prevent corrosion and make next rotor change ez. Torques:
Front caliper guide pins:18 ft lb
Front carrier bolts: 89 ft lb
Rear guide pin lock bolts:26 ft lb
Wheel lugs: 89 ft lb

What type of TOOL is needed to take out the 2 bolts holding the FRONT BREAK caliper on my 2002 Nissan Quest. I CALLED Nissan and they simply said HIT the caliper with a LARGE hammer to break free the...


Go to the auto parts store and pick up a set of allen sockets for your ratchet. They are the common 3/8 ratchet size and will provide the leverage you need. Make sure the hole is clean and the socket fits snugly or you run the risk of rounding the corners. Giving the socket a tap with a hammer will ensure it is fully seated in the bolt.
I have used a small pipe wrench on these bolts and gotten them started with a fair degree of sucess but it takes some fiddling to get it on there. Vice grips won't bite in enough to break it free.
Get a small bottle of Never-Seize while you are at the store and coat the bolt threads before you reinstall them.Also there is a special lubricant for the sliders. Get some to ensure free movement of the pads. Hope this helps.

Front brake pads 2005 Skoda Octavia 1.9td


I have no idea what a skoda octavia is, but I know brakes are brakes. You have 2 bolts holding the pads in a slide, the bolts have threads only at the top, the rest is the slide, pull those bolts, if that doesn't release the slide, take out the 2 bolts holding the caliper on there, pull the slide out the other way. replace the pads, make sure they go back in the way came out. Put the bolts back on, tighten them up, you should be all set. The pad thickness sensor is just a ground, when the wire hits metal, it turns on a light, It should go off when it is not touching anything. You should have squealers on there too, they give an audible screech telling you it is time for some new pads. Hope this helps.

96 gmc savana 1500 pass van caliper


It's not actually a torx head, it's a hex head. I don't know if they changed the size since '96, but my '02 needed a 3/8" hex key (also known as an Allen wrench).

It's gonna be tough, I put the key in sideways so that forcing it down would rotate it counter-clockwise (keep in mind that the bolt faces the other way... don't want to inadvertently tighten it), then put my foot on the key, knee against the wheel well, and used my ankle to break it free. On the passenger side, because the brake line was in the way, I had to set the key so that forcing upwards would break it loose, then used a 2-foot length of pipe to get the torque advantage needed to break it free.
