What tooks do you need to take off calipers

Two bolts hold the capliper solid in the caliper bracket that is fitted on the wheel hub. Just find the right size wrench for those two bolts (possibly 10 mm), remove them, and the caliper is free except for the brake hose leading to it. If removing completely from the car, remove the brake line at the union fitting, then unscrew it from the caliper.

Need to know what size allen wrench to take off front disc brakes on 2000 chevy silverado 4.8 l

The caliper guide pins will usually have either a 3/8 inch or a 5/16 inch allen head bolt. If the brake calipers are found to have phenolic pistons then it would be advisable to change them with calipers that have metal pistons.

Rear break caliber

If your having a leakage from this, or if your rear brakes are locking up, replace both calipers (one on each side) and replace rear brakes if necessary - (if replaced, it's best to replace front as well, but not necessary if they are still good).

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Need instruction on installing front brake pads for 1994 Camry...

The Camry brake system is very simple and easy to work with

Raise and support the car safely and remove the front wheel.

Undo the two bolts that hold the brake piston to the caliper. These are the two bolts toward the front. Remove and support the piston in a manner that does not place any strain on the brake line. For example, you can use a length of string to hang the piston from the strut spring.

With the piston out of the way, undo the two remaining bolts closer to the axle, that hold the brake caliper to the knuckle. Remove the caliper.

The old pads will slide out of the caliper. Note how they fit in place before removing them, so you can place the new ones the same way. Remove the shims from the back of each pad and place them on the back of the new pads.

Slide the new pads into the caliper.

Bolt the caliper onto the knuckle.

Use a clamp or a piston expander to push the piston back so it will fit over the new pads. Take care while doing this that you do not overflow the brake fluid in the master cylinder reservoir.

Put the piston back in place over the pads and bolt it onto the caliper.

Make sure all bolts are torqued to spec.

When replacing the pads, remove and inspect the rotors. If necessary, have them turned or replace them.

Also, inspect the calipers and make sure the spring arms move freely. Inspect the caliper hardware (clips and springs) and replace if necessary.

Inspect the pistons. If necessary, drain and refill the pistons with fresh brake fluid, and bleed the system.

With the brakes back in place, check that the brake pedal is firm or firms up after a few pumps at the most. If not, you will need to figure out why.

Replace the wheel, lower the car, torque the lug nuts to spec, and you're done.

Brakes are an essential safety system of your car. Follow these instructions at your own risk. Refer to a complete service manual.

Good luck and let me know if you have any questions.

It all depends on what type, some are bolts, some are torx type, and some are allen wrench type.
On the back pads you need a special tool to press in the piston, cause the back ones need to be turned in, not pressed in like the front. At any rate, the bolts are metric.

I'm trying to change the front brakes on my 2004 Toyota Tundra. What size is the bolt that holds the caliper?

If it's a bolt it's a 17MM if it is smaller then you are on the wrong bolt, there are two of them and if there is no bolt then it's a # 8 or #10 tork head wrench.

I have a 2000 Passat and going to have my friend replace the rotors and breaks. I am preparing to fix it but want to know what sizes are the bolts for the calipers sliding pins. If you know the Bolt s

For a wrench or for the acctual bolt size.
To remove front need 8mm allen socket to pull the caliper guide pins, then 17 or 18mm..To remove rear need 13mm socket for lock bolt on guide pins and 15mm open end wrench (thin section to hold guide pin while you remove lock bolts..I ground down a spare wrench). You DO NOT have to remove rear carriers to change rotors..just remove lock screw and angle rotor out. The B5 Passats don't have the electronic parking brake so you don't need VAG Com to change pads.
Installation tips:
Clean and regrease the guide pins with "synthetic caliper grease"
Rear lock bolts come with preapplied thread locker and "are not to be reused"..I just wire brush the threads and use some Loctite Blue on em. I smear just a little antisieze on the inside bore of the rotors and on the lock screw threads to prevent corrosion and make next rotor change ez. Torques:
Front caliper guide pins:18 ft lb
Front carrier bolts: 89 ft lb
Rear guide pin lock bolts:26 ft lb
Wheel lugs: 89 ft lb
