SOURCE: 99 silverado 2500, what is the correct size torx

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!

SOURCE: Porsche 944 drive shaft torx key bolts

I ran into a similar problem when working on the bolts that hold the 4 piston calipers together on my BMW 2002Tii, that the Torx was too small and rounding off the inside edges of the bolt head. Being unable to find a bit that was between the x5 and next size up x0 torx, I decided to consult an expert. After going to the service department of my local dealership and talking to some of the older and more knowledgeable guys, we determined that the easiest fix is to take a cheap torx bit and grind down the tip of it so the bit engages a little bit more, since the bit tapers towards the end this would give much more of a positive engagement. Worked great after 3 minutes on a belt sander.

The front caliper takes a 9mm hex drive socket, and you can order it from Snap-on tools online. Nobody else had this socket and its the only one that is made for that caliper.

The gear shifter wont go into park , and only started in neutral but now seems to be stripped. this is a 1992 crown victoria v-e


The bolt tens to loosen up on the shifter. Look up from the floor board at the column. You will see the shift cable attached to a metal shift arm. Where this arm is bolted to the column with two bolt, tighten the bolts they should be loose, You will need a torx bit. I think T30 or t40

Tool needed to remove SRS Control Module fro 1997 Honda Accord


Hi, the bit is called a Torx Bit or a star bit. Don't get the type for a screwdriver, get the socket that would go on a ratchet, you'll need to put an extension on it of course to get in there. Push hard or it will strip. Give Honda a call and ask them what size it is for your car for sure, might be a 6mm or you can just buy a metric Torx Bit Set. Separately they are $3.99 at Autozone. Not sure how much the kit is. Good luck.

Does anyone have a diagram for a 1978 caprice alternator belt?


I can't send you a diagram,but it's not too hard to explain. Loosen off the alternator first. Two bolts, one you can see that goes through a bracket on the engine and another that is directly under that bolt on the bottom of the alternator that goes into the engine. Fit your new belt over the fan first, one blade at a time and on the pulley. Run the belt down to the bottom crankchaft pulley and then across to the alternator. Before you tighten the belt make sure that all 3 pulleys are in a straight line when you look from the side. If not move them so they are. Take a long screwdriver and put it in the hole on top of the alternator bracket and pry the alternator over so the belt is snug and a little bit more. Tighten the top bolt first,but be careful because it can strip the threads. Then tighten the bottom bolt.You will probably have to retighten it after a few days because the belt will stretch. If the belt squeals when you start or rev the engine then it needs to be a little tighter. If you strip the top bolt, just take it out and find a smaller one with a nut and washers and use it with the washers on the front to keep the new bolt from pulling through the bracket. Hope this helps.
