How do i remove front brake lines on a 2000 dodge dakota


You can pickup a replacement line at Advance Auto, Autozone, Carquest, Napa, O'Reilly's, or any other auto parts store.

Use two open end wrenches to separate the two lines -it may be one of these sizes standard sizes 3/8", 7/16", 1/2", 9/16".

Keep a pan or bucket underneath the lines to catch the fluid.

Use one open end wrench (use appropriate size) to remove the other end of the line from the wheel cylinder. I am assuming that you have drum brakes.

If you find that the hex heads are rusted, froze, or chewed up -try using the following items as well.

Try using metric wrenches when the hex heads have rusted to a smaller size. Also wire brushing rust away may help the wrench fit better.

Spray frozen parts with penetrating oil and let soak a few minutes.

If still froze -use a propane torch or a MAPP gas torch to heat fittings.

If hex head is chewed use vise grip pliers.

Good luck.

What size allen wrench for brake calipers on 2001 Dodge Dakota 2WD 3.9L and what size is the nut holding the rotor on? Standard or Metric?


a 7 mm hex head wrench for the caliper bolts. the nut that holds the bearings in place is usually a 1 inch or 1 1/16 inch, but a pair of pliers should be enough to take the nut off after the cotter pin is removed. when you put the nut back on DO NOT over tighten it or you will damage the wheel bearings.

What size torx is needed to remove the front brake caliper on a 2005 dodge durango


Hi,
It requires a special size that comes as a socket type from the parts store. I believe is is a TORX 45. But, usually you can fit and allen wrench into the torx hole to remove them. I have used 5/16",3/8",8mm and 9mm allens to do the job on various vehicles and it worked out great.
Hope that helps!...Mike

Need to know what size allen wrench to take off front disc brakes on 2000 chevy silverado 4.8 l


The caliper guide pins will usually have either a 3/8 inch or a 5/16 inch allen head bolt. If the brake calipers are found to have phenolic pistons then it would be advisable to change them with calipers that have metal pistons.

1988 Dodge Dakota brake line size question


they should be 3/16" but if you want to be sure, take a quarter inch wrench and put the open end over the line if it is sloppy on the line it is 3/16" , if it fits nicely, it is 1/4" . that is the only two sizes they could of used.

Putting new brakes on my 1999 Dodge Ram1500


You will also need 5" clamp, screw type to compress calipers, be careful to slightly loosen the bleed screw while doing so or ABS system could be adversly affected. Allen wrench should be a 5/16 but the sell just a single wrench to do the job if it a bigger size. You will also need to figure out how to remove the allen head bolt, I use box end wrench on the allen wrench to torque long end down.
