Post Stupid Bolts! Help guys!

Hey. I finished replacing the rotors and pads on both my rear brakes. I went to move on to the fronts last night and couldn't get the damn 19mm bolts that hold the caliper to budge! Got them out fine on the rears, but not the front. Any tips or tricks i can use to help these things budge? Any compounds that will loosen the crap that is holding them in?

Also, I heard that the reason for most power steering leaks is a faulty clamp on the hoses. You guys know the part number for the better clamp?

Thanks,

Nick

Go to Sears or a tool store and get yourself a 1/2" "Breaker Bar." First hit the nuts with a hammer and a block of wood to break the glaze, then put the breaker bar on it. Brake bolts suffer tremendous heat and sometimes require extra effort to break.

All of the above, just be careful heating areas soaked in penetrating oil with a torch. As for the 1/2 breaker bar, don't get one less than 18" long, if you need more leverage, slip a length of pipe on the handle. Although, at that point, I think you'll either strip the bolt, break the bolt, break the socket, bust your knuckles or all of the above !

Good luck

the clamps are just worm clamps.get under the car and peel the boots back on the power steering rack. if fluid pours out your rack is bad via the seals.
