My 99 still uses that 3/8" allen head bolt, too. Gotta love the consistency!

Default 93 olds cutlass ciera * caliper star socket size

Just changed the brake pads on my 1993 oldmobile Cutlass Ciera * 3.3L and after all the forums I read dealing with 92 to 95 all said it was a t60 star socket, my 93 infact was a t50 star socket not a t60 or hex but a t50. I hope this helps
someone from avoid all the bs and guessing.
