I'm trying to change brakes on our Expedition. What size allen wrench does it take before I go out and buy one? Thanks Jeff

seeker,

Thanks for the response. Our 05 is definitely allen head. I determined it has to be 9mm because of all the wrenches I've tried. 9mm is an oddball size so I need to order one to do the brakes. Thanks again. Jeff

I think you meant 9mm. 19mm is a very big allen wrench. Jeff

I think he means a 19mm socket. For some reason, I too remember only have to take 2 larger (19mm?) bolts to take the caliper off.

Unless you're trying to take off the bolts that are under the black dust caps?

I'll check mine tomorrow.

Those 2 bolts remove the caliper and the bracket. You don't need to remove those unless you are changing rotors. Yes, I'm talking about the bolts under the dust caps. I replaced the rotors on the back and the bolts for the caliper bracket took an 18mm socket. Jeff
