I would check with my local parts house, I think you will find that there is a tool especially made just for the brakes on that vehicle. It is not uncommon for all makes to have a special size just for changing brakes on their vehicles. I know some Fords have it, you should see the one for a 1993 Cadillac Seville, looks like a small box. Doesn't make sense but it sells a lot of tools. It's probably a 52-53 or something like that and of course only useful for the brakes on that particular model. Hope this helps.

What size Allen wrench do I need for a Chevy van g20 1991, to change my brakes?


I think they were a 3/8 allen. I also found that a torx bit T50 I think works also. GM changed the sizes around on some that had heavy duty brakes.

To front pads, tighten the caliper pins to 16-30 ft. lbs. (22-40 Nm) on 1997-98 F-250HD, F-350 and F-Super duty models. Tighten the caliper pins to 21-26 ft. lbs. (28-36 Nm) on the F-150, F-250, Expedition and Navigator. Tighten the caliper pins to 42 ft. lbs. (56 Nm) on the 1999-00 F-250SD, F-350 and F-Super Duty models.

To install the rear disc brake caliper onto the rear support bracket. Tighten the caliper retaining pins on the F-150, F-250, Expedition and Navigator to 20 ft. lbs. ( 27 Nm). Tighten the caliper retaining bolts on the 1999-00 F-Super Duty models to 27 ft. lbs. (36 Nm.)

Hope helps.

What size allen wrench to remove front brake caliper


i just changed my front rotors and pads on my 2001 escape, 6 cylinder. everyone was wrong on the wrench sizes, including the idiots at my local ford dealer. to get the brake calipers off I needed a 7mm hex bit. to get the caliper bracket off I needed an 18mm socket, it was a very easy job but check your wrench sizes first, it seems that every year and model uses different sizes.

99 silverado 2500, what is the correct size torx bit for the caliper bolt?


The correct size is a T55, which is NOT included in the 3 bit brake set sold at Sears. Fortunately I got the larger set. A note to all you mechanics out there - brake caliper bolts do NOT need the tightness that only 3 gorillas can provide. Yes, they do need to be tight but not to the extent that one is breaking bits to free the bolt - and no, it was not due to rust. And why on earth are there torx head bolts on the Chevy anyway? I will go back to Ford if I ever get the chance!

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
