ok, it's japanese.. get a ruler and measure the nut from top to bottom to get the milimeter size and their you go... probably 14-16 (but who rents sockets?)

buy a nice all purpose socket set with both standard and metric for around 30$... owning a motorcycle you will get the best out of it

Wrench size front brake calipers

Hi Anonymous, you are better off using 12 point sockets, if you are going to work on your own bike you have to have basic hand tools. The first and very best tool you will ever buy for your motorcycle should be a factory service manual. It will pay for itself the very first time you use it.

What size allen wrench to remove front brake 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.

How to replace front break pads

Ford Taurus - Front Brake Replacement A couple of things should be noted before you begin. Number one is, don’t be alone when you do this. If the car is in the air and it falls on you, all of your money saving ideas go out the window because you are dead or really hurt. Seriously, if you are going to work under your car while it is up on jack stands (not a couple of tree stumps or your child’s Hot Wheel or the two big rocks you found in the garden) let someone know so they can check on you once in a while. Another thing, the brake pads and linings may contain asbestos so don’t inhale the brake dust or blow it out with compressed air. Never use petroleum based solvents to clean brake parts and make sure you use a DOT 3 brake fluid when filling the master cylinder. 00:35 Here are some tools and equipment that you may need to buy: jack and jack stand lug wrench needle nose pliers standard and cross tip screwdrivers socket wrench with sockets from 1/4" to 1" in size 00:49 If you plan on doing brakes all of the time, you m ay want to add these things to your tool list: caliper spreader brake spring pliers brake adjusting tool brake bleeder hose brake cleaner 01:07 Set the emergency brake and make sure car is on level ground. 01:13 Remove the lug nuts and tire. 01:20 The part on top of the brakes is the brake caliper. 01:25 Using a 12mm socket, loosen both of the bolts located on the inside portion of the brake assembly. Remove the two bolts by hand after they are loose and place somewhere safe so as to remember which bolt went on top and bottom. 01:50 After you remove the bolts, set the caliper upside down on the brake assembly being very careful not to kink the brake hoses. 02:00 Pull the brake pads out and install the new brake pads. 02:08 Place the old brake pads in the upside down caliper and place the caliper spreader between them. Open the spreader until snug. 02:22 Flip the caliper over and break the brake bleeder valve open and with more pressure exerted on the pads by the spreader, use a container to capture the old brake fluid. Once you meet resistance, stop applying pressure. 02:53 Next, tighten bleeder valve back up and remove the caliper spreader and remove old brake pads from the caliper. 03:07 Place the caliper back to it’s original position over the brake pads and install the top and bottom bolts by hand (to avoid cross threading) and snug with the socket. Replace tire

What size socket do I need to change the oil and brakes.

The oil drain plug is a 13 mm. The tools for the brakes, a 10 mm socket for the caliper pins, a flat head screwdriver, or a meduim size prybat to get the calipers out of the mounting bracket, and a 4" C-clamp to compress the pistons into the calipers so you can put the new pads on.

300zx front brakes.

Nothing more special than a basic metric socket set, a good size C-clamp, and maybe a screwdriver. Remove the wheel and unbolt the caliper from the hub (two bolts on the backside, I believe 17mm). Remove the brake fluid reservoir cap. Slide the caliper off the rotor and remove the outer pad. Use the C-clamp against the inner pad to compress the pistons back into the caliper to provide clearance for the new, thicker pads to clear the rotor. Do the same for the outer pistons. Install the new pads, remount the caliper, and put the wheel back on. Replace the fluid cap, pump up the brake pedal for pressure, then take it out and bed the pads in with several back to back stops from 30mph with steady, even pressure on the pedal. You'll be good to go at that point.
