3/8" maybe.... Lemme go look in the garage...

EDIT: Yup, looks like my 3/8" hex appears to be my most worn one. So that must be it. Smile

sweet thanks, I was thinking either 3/8" or 10mm. I was diggin' some more on other club sites and I thought I found it was 10mm, so I ordered a set of metric bits from work. Hopfully that 10mm works, if not I have to get a set of SAE.

Either way, can't hurt to have the metrics and the standards.

I think the 10mm works but a better idea to use the 3/8".

I'm just glad our cars don't have threads in the caliper, I stripped come caliper threads once when I was working at a Chevy shop, that was an expensive mistake... pale
