My Dad Has 2008 E350 4matic trying to replace front brakes. Don't have a long Allen wrench to remove caliper. Anyone know what size so I can buy and remove? Thanks Curtis


Probably is a T-50 bit that fits on your rachet...you can buy a set of star key bits...these are not allen wrenches...Hope this helps.

What size torx is needed to remove the front brake caliper on a 2005 dodge durango


Hi,
It requires a special size that comes as a socket type from the parts store. I believe is is a TORX 45. But, usually you can fit and allen wrench into the torx hole to remove them. I have used 5/16",3/8",8mm and 9mm allens to do the job on various vehicles and it worked out great.
Hope that helps!...Mike

Putting new brakes on my 1999 Dodge Ram1500


You will also need 5" clamp, screw type to compress calipers, be careful to slightly loosen the bleed screw while doing so or ABS system could be adversly affected. Allen wrench should be a 5/16 but the sell just a single wrench to do the job if it a bigger size. You will also need to figure out how to remove the allen head bolt, I use box end wrench on the allen wrench to torque long end down.

Replacing the rear rotors on a 2003 E320


So this is what it takes to replace rear brake rotors on a 2003 Mercedes E320;
1) open the bonnet (hood) of the car and loosen/remove the cap off of the brake fluid resevior.
2) remove outer spring clamp from brake assembly (it clips in to the iner edge of the holes of the caliper).
3)using a 7 MM allen wrench, remove the brake caliper.
4) using 18 MM box wrench, remove the caliper housing assembly off of the wheel hub.
5) using a star wrench, unscrew the rotor locking screw from the rotor
6) squirt some liquid wrench on the rotor hub and knock the rotor with a hammer to work the liquid wrench in.
7) using the same hammer, knock the rotor off the hub.
8) using a metal file, lightly file old residue off of the hub and place the new rotor on the hub.
9) set the hub by screwing in the lug nuts and then screw in the hub locking screw using the star wrench, then remove the lug nuts.
10) reinstall the caliper housing assembly onto the wheel hub using the 18 MM box wrench.
11) push back the brake claiper piston to its home position and install the inner brake pad (the one with the snap clips)
12) insert the outer brake pad in the claper housing assembly.
13) slide on the caliper housing with the inner brake pad in place (over the outer brake pad) and screw in the caliper screw rods using the 7 MM allen wrench
14) on the right wheel brakes, DO NOT FORGET to slide in the brake sensor (the one with the black connector) and connect it to the connector on the caliper housing.
15) be sure to reinsert the spring clamp onto the outer brake assembly to set the assembly squarely onto the wheel (there should be no wiggle in the brake assembly after the spring clamps are installed).
16) finally mount the wheels.
17) you can bleed the brakes at this point to release any trapped air (which is unlikely) but be sure to pump the brakes after starting the car BUT BEFORE MOVING IT to re-preassurize the brake system before driving the car.
17) ONE WEEK LATER - recheck brake assembly to ensure all is okay and brake fluid.

This proposed solution is for a 2003 Mercedes Benz E320 and NOT a 2005 model as stated by the limited option selection provided by FIXYA.com when initially describing the problem.
