If I am remembering correctly, they should be 10mm (possibly 11mm) Be very careful putting them back in . Keep them straight and make sure you can screw them in using your fingers so you know they aren't cross threaded. The ears they screw into are cast iron and easy to strip out and there isn't a lot of "meat" there so don't over tighten them either. (tight is good but don't lean into the wrench. you will probably see a blue substance on the threads...at the factory they use a semi-hardening thread lock on them) If you find yours are stripped, they can be repaired using a heli-coil kit.

2002 Trailblazer - 4 bolts on caliper. I loosened the top bolt with the pin, but when I try to loosen the bottom, it feels like I'm tightening it. Do I need to loosen all 4?

What size wrench would be required loosen bleeder on caliper of 2002 Ford Taurus


The one that fits! You can't possibly do work on vehicles without a full set of open ended and ring wrenches. My guess is 8mm from memory. They are all the same size.

What size Allen wrench for 2001 escape front caliper?


i just changed my front rotors and pads on my 2001 escape, 6 cylinder. everyone was wrong on the wrench sizes, including the idiots at my local ford dealer. to get the brake calipers off I needed a 7mm hex bit. to get the caliper bracket off I needed an 18mm socket, it was a very easy job but check your wrench sizes first, it seems that every year and model uses different sizes.

Replacing disc brakes on a 2000 volkswagne jetta


You will need a 7mm allen wrench to remove the caliper and the bolts come in from the back side once the two bolts are removed and you slide the caliper off you can use a c-clamp to push the cylinder back in to the caliper. Do not unhook any lines or loosen them and you will not need to bleed the brakes afterwards

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.
