Default 91 pontiac bonneville

i am trying to change the front brakes on my 91 pontiac bonneville se, and i cant figure out what tool i needd to take off the caliper. if you know what size and what tool it is please help me out. thanks.



On another note, i just got the car a couple months ago. it has 213k miles but it runs smooth and the previous owners have taken care of it. i bought it for 400 and it has no rust no problems ever except the brakes. can you tell me if i got a good deal? thanks.

You talking about the bolt in back holding the caliper to the bracket? Is it a bolt head or a allen head? I believe the bolt head is a 15mm, not sure on the hex wrench off hand.

I think its a 3/8 allen. Best to get a allen/socket from autozone.
