Is it hex (like an allen screw) or is it a Torx or Torx plus? Torx are serrated.

Brake rotor removal


you shouldn't need any special tool all you have to do is remove the caliper assembly of the rotor and the rotor should come right off. If not then the rotor should come off if a there is a nut holding it on there

What size Allen wrench for 2001 escape front caliper?


i just changed my front rotors and pads on my 2001 escape, 6 cylinder. everyone was wrong on the wrench sizes, including the idiots at my local ford dealer. to get the brake calipers off I needed a 7mm hex bit. to get the caliper bracket off I needed an 18mm socket, it was a very easy job but check your wrench sizes first, it seems that every year and model uses different sizes.

Replace disc


someitmes, you have to remove the brake caliper to get the rotor off. It has 2 bolts going from the inside to the outside. Usually a hex head or a Torx head bolt. Same as Ford Escape.

Where do i get the tool to replace the brakes and disc on a 2005 mariner


The tool is nothing more than a 3/8 drive allen hex head, metric. They come in a set with 4 wrenches, sized from 7 to 10 mm. and 4 inches long just for brakes. Sears has them I think. Your Ford has different size bolts front and rear. The set is only about $8. Get the pads done before they eat the rotors, I hear they can't be turned, which is a joke. Hope this helps.

What is the socket size of the nut holding the front rotor on a 2005 toyota corolla? its not a hex nut but a 12 point socket?


the only things that are holding the rotor on is 1) the brake caliper which i believe has 2 14mm screws and 2) the brake caliper bracket which has 2 17mm screws holding it in place.once you remove these 2 parts,tap on the rotor( where the wheel goes bolted on )with a hammer and it should come off easily.if not spray some penetrant on the studs that hold the tire on, then tap on it some more and it should come off.hope this info helps.take care and good luck, manny
