    Default Socket size help

    I need to change the relucter rings, rotors and pads.

    Unfortunately I moved all my tools to another house we own and I don't have my metric tools where I am renting.

    Can anyone tell me the socket/wrench sizes I need to remove the caliper brackets/caliper and the hub along with the size of the little Allen or star bolt that holds the rotor on? Do I need an extension or deep sockets,?

    Basically, what size sockets do I need to do the job? I am going to go buy some individual ones. I have box wrenches.

    Thanks!!

    You need a 7mm hex (allen wrench) bit to remove the caliper slide pins.

    If you bought Volvo rotors, they come with the 2 replacement bolts for the caliper frame...just measure the bolt heads.

    As far as the tiny bolt attaching the rotor to the hub, an adjustable spanner will do.

    I've never replaced a reluctor ring.

    OK. Thanks! Here is what you need:

    19MM - Lug nuts
    15MM - Caliper Brackets
    7MM - allen caliper bolts
    10MM - rotor retention bolt of you have a bolt instead of an Allen head
    10MM - Dust Shield
    8MM - Speed Sensor
    18MM - Hub Bolts
    13MM - Axle bolt
    Swivel head - Very helpful with hub bolts if you have one
    BFH - Solid and dead blow

    6 sided sockets for all are ideal in the event that anything is seized on there.
