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.

Youll also need to remove the hubs from the axle and then press the wheel stud out before you can remove the rotors if your going to machine them

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

What wrench do I need to remove front calipers on a 2002 Focus?


A set of wrenches and either a c-clamp or vise grips that look like the c-clamp, and a small block of wood. You'll have to push the brake calliper piston back in.
