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.

  1. nstall the caliper mounting bolts. Perform the following procedure before installing the caliper guide pin bolts (15 Series only).
  2. Remove all traces of the original adhesive patch.
  • Clean the threads of the bolt with brake parts cleaner or the equivalent and allow to dry.
  • Apply Red Loctite#272 to the threads of the bolt.
  1. Install the caliper mounting bolts (25 series). Tighten the caliper guide pin bolts to 42 Nm (31 ft. lbs.) on the 15 series; 108 Nm (80 ft. lbs.) on the 25 series.

99 silverado 2500, what is the correct size torx bit for the caliper bolt?


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!

2002 silverado 2500HD rear brake question????


You'll need a T-55 torx bit to remove the rear caliper pins/bolts. You can try using an insert style bit...one that removes from the socket or perhaps purchase a replacement bit (one that would be used in a cordless drill/driver.) The one I used had a 5/16" hex shank. Like you said, there is very little clearance between the head and the leaf springs, which won't allow room for a breaker bar and torx bit. So using a 5/16" wrench, ( I'd recommend a 6 point box wrench to prevent slipping or rounding off.) I was able to loosen the bolt. Or plan B is to remove the caliper mounting bracket which is held on by two 21 or 22 mm hex head bolts. Which would have to be removed to remove the brake rotor.
