Can not removed bolts from caliper on buick lasabre

First off are the bolts without heads? Are you using an allen key to loosen them.. Gm likes to do this? It they are loos and you want the bolts out of the caliaper they should push out. Take a screw driver and pry the treads on the bolt and go easy and they will fall out if that is your problem?

Removing calipers from a 1997 T-Bird..

Those bolts should be allen head bolts and NOT torx (star shaped). With a torx bit in that hole all u will do is mess up a torx bit and the flats for the allen wrenches to grab onto. Try using a 10 or 12 mm( cant remeber which it is) allen head wrench.

What tool do I use to change brake pads

Use proper sized socket to take out 2 bolts holding caliper on. Lift caliper up to remove. Open brake reservoir top and use old pad and large c-clamp to compress cylinder back in fully. Put squeek-stop on back of new pads and install the way you took them off. Remember where the wear bar on the pad was.Little metal tab on pad. Bolt it back on and you should be good to go. Shouldn't have to bleed system.

Front barke caliper bolts on 97 biuck leasbre what type and size

You will need to climb back there with a flashlight and look. I believe they are allen bolt, and they auto parts store will sell a kit with 3 of the most used allen bolts drivers in a 3/8" socket set.

Alternative is that the bolts may be torx, in which case, the auto parts store will have those as well.

The nice thing is, the sizes are very common, and the driver kit's normally have the 2-3 sizes that are most common for brake repair.
