It is a T-55 sometimes easy othe time a pain in the ****. You will need to turn the wheel in and throw a bar on it. Now if only I knew the torque specs for the caliper an mounting bracket...

SOURCE: 1994 K1500 brake rotor replacement

if you replace the rotor you shouldnt have to take the spindle nut off,if you are talkin about the lug nuts then they are 7/8" standard or 22mm metric,and the torque on those are 140 ft lbs.the rotor might just be rusted on,a good whack with a hammer after the caliper and caliper bracket have been removed should get it loose for you,hope this helps

Don't know the size of socket, but if you look in the bed of the truck, you will see the heads of the bolts(round objects about an inch or so in dia) and this will give you the locatiopn for the bolts. Also don't forget to unhook your fuel fill hoses and all electrical connections! before lifting bed.

2.4. What tools are needed to remove crank sensor?

This probably isn't what you want to hear? If your going to work on your own vehicles, you need a basic set of wrenches and sockets, standard and metric sizes.
My info says you need to remove starter in order to remove that sensor. I don't know correct socket size, you need a basic set of tools, if one socket is the wrong size, grab another one.
Also, You may need to do a variation learn procedure after you replace that sensor, I have no experience in that area, you may need a scanner?

What size socket do I use to remove a front rotor?

You don't need a socket. The rotor is held by a torx flathead screw. I stripped mine and drilled it out. It is not necessary. Remove the brakes and this little screw from the rotor and it will come off. If it won't. you need to watch a you tube video about removing a stuck rotor. It is fairly simple. But hard to explain in words.

What tool do you use to take off front rotors

You do not need a tool to remove them. They are considered a knock off rotor. Once you remove the 2 caliper bolts ( a hex socket is needed and I apologize for not knowing the correct size of hand) you can remove the caliper. If the rotor is stuck in place you may have to gently hit it from the backside with a hammer.

If you plan on reusing the rotor a block of wood between the rotor and hammer will help marring the surface of the rotor.

Sometime you will need to get really aggressive with the hammer but eventually it will pop loose.

any sockets are going to be metric its either a 16 or 17 . Just try all till they fit snug and thats the one. Also a auto repair manual from chiltons , would give you more exact information on your vehicle.

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 need 8mm allen socket to pull the caliper guide pins, then 17 or 18mm..To remove rear 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

Remove and replace rear rotor

Yes, you need to remove the center nut. The proper socket size tends to differ between models, so its kind of a guess and check thing. The tourque setting is also variable between vehicles of the same model and year, try finding a mechanics guide for the car, and checking that. But once you get that nut off all you should have to do is pry the rotor from the back of the hub, and it should pop right off.
