What drive socket do i need to remove front caliper on 2006 vw jetta?

caliper or most brake part bolts are between 10mm and 19mm for the wheel bolts , get a set online if haven't got tools , don't waste time and money just trying to get a particular size as many different manufacturers are used for the same part and may just get one that uses a different bolt head size

Rear brake pads

you will have to get hold of a 7mm allen for those bolts. and if the caliper still won't come off, you will have to force it as it is probably seized. use a screwdriver or a small pry bar to push back on the piston and pry the caliper off. make sure everything is clean and lubricated when you reassemble or it will soon seize up again.

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.

How do i get the calapers off the rear of a 2006 grand caravane?

Using a C clamp depress the claiper. There a spot right in the middle to do this. Now the fun part hope you have metic hex key set. The 2 caliper guide pins are on the back inside the boots. Which need to be in great condition. Using the metic hex keys some are 7mm or 8mm turn to your right to remove. Rmove the caliper mounting bracket bolts. Fun part #2 removing the disc rotor. Theres parking brake pads or a durm brake system on the inside of the rotor. If the rotor does not slide off. You must remove the rubber gromet on the back of the backing plate. Using a screwdriver or the old brake adjuster tool turn the star wheel to adjust the parking brake in to remove the disc rotor. All brake guides on the calipers & guide pins need to have high temperture brake grease applyed to them. Buy the big bottle for $10 for the front brakes & future use it comes with a bush. Note ** Remove a guide pin take to auto store buy socket to reinstall guide pin/bolt. Why Caliper guide pins 26lbs torque. Caliper mounting bolts 125lb torque

How to get disc brake assemly off?

Front or rear?
For front: Remove wheel/tire
Remove brake caliper - two bolts usually with internal hex heads (think big Allen wrench)
Lift caliper (which holds pads) out of the way and support it so it doesn't "hang" by the brake hose (you may have to tap it with a hammer)
Once the caliper is out of the way, the disc (also called a "rotor") should slide off the hub. Unless it's rear wheel drive. In that case, you'll need to remove the small center hubcab, remove the cotter pin from its hole in the spindle, then remove the large packing nut. The outer bearing can then be removed and the rotor can then be removed.
