Question about Chevrolet Tracker
2001 chevy tracker 2.0L 4x4 DOHC. I need to remove the flywheel to get to the ckp (crankshaft position sensor) i've tried every socket and wrench from 15mm-17mm (5/8-11/16) and everything from 6 point sockets to 12 point. I'm wondering if the flywheel mounting bolts use a specialty tool or if it's just a ******* size.
I'm thinking here that the head of the bolts is not very thick in which case the socket you are using will need some modification. If you look in the socket you will see that there is a small lead in relief and this will only allow the socket to full engage on 1/2 of the bolt head. Place the socket in a vice and use a grinder to grind of the face of the socket until the sides are square across. This will give full contact with the bolt head inside the socket.. Another point, it is unusual to find metric bolts in a USA made engine so check out the other size metric sockets as European metric use 9-11-13-15-16-18-20 mm sizes compared to Asian 10-12-14-17-19-21 mm. in auto production.

I think the socket is a dealer item only. I'm on a tool forum and none of the drivers have one. http://www.uktools.com/ sell a Koken 16mm and 14mm 10 point socket. SPC-69330 has a 16mm. I mailed a 10 point with a 13mm head to a tool company to ask if they will make a socket. You can try a damaged nut socket my Blue Point would go all the way on but may cut off the ends. Then you would go down to the next size. An air hammer if applied to the side will loosen the bolt.

SOURCE: i am trying to replace
Hello: There should be a 10mm bolt head that holds a clip. This clip keeps the speed sensor in place. Use a 10 mm wrench, socket to remove bolt/screw.
