What wrench do i need to remove the brake pads on a 1986 chevy celebrity

You'll need some metric size wrenches. Usually a 13mm and a 15mm or 16mm. Some also use an allen head socket. Auto Zone sells a rack of 5 allen sockets to fit most autos using that set up.

You shouldn't have to... There is a large bolt on the front of the main pully. When you put the wrench on it, it will move that pully allowing you to put the belt on.
