I've got access to get this info but it will take me until tomorrow... I'm doing the 2008's rears tomorrow night so will double check 2005... hang tight.

Sorry, I should have specified. I need the 2008 w/o the EPB.

Also, I asked this in another thread, but since your doing the 2008 as well, is there a trick to getting an impact hammer or breaker bar enough room to loosen the caliper bolts? There doesn't seem anyway to get the power tool in there and I'm only getting about 3 degrees of rotation with the breaker bar.

Thanks in advance for any help!

You could have just removed the 13mm bolts for the caliper by now and been done with it. Its gotta come off to do the pads anyway.

I "can't" remove the bolts... that's the problem. They are too tight for anything but the breaker bar. I don't have any clearance for the impact wrench. The flange around the lower arm is preventing a decent sized ratchet from being used. My box end wrench doesn't have enough leverage.

Are you talking about the pad retainer bolts that hold the retaimer bracket to the spindle or the caliper bolts that hold the caliper to the bracket?

Agreed, can't picture what is attempting to be done...

2008 was 2x15MM, box wrench and a rubber mallet to move it along... for fun, I tried the 1/2" impact with a wobbler, worked fine... can you post a pic?

I could even sneak a 1/2" 15MM socket in there on a 1/2" driver...
