you must remove the 4 torx bolts from the axle mount and remove axle to give enough clearance to remove brake wheel cylinder

Most wheel cylenders have two bolts that come through the back of mounting plate but you also need to remove the metal brake line first it is best to use brake line end wrenches,"I bought mine at sears 'craftman' they look like a six point boxed end with just a little piece of the center cut out" to do this so you don't round off the break line nut and even then be careful or you will end up having to replace the brake line. If it gives you a hard time, make sure your brake line wench is on the nut properly and tap the wrench wit a small hammer also be carefull not to break off the bleader valve on top of the wheel cylinders back its just about dead center between the two mounting bolts. p.s. if your sunbird is a front wheel drive and a 2.0 have fun getting to the starter or any of the hoses at the back of the water pump it was a 2 day job on my wifes 94 sunbird
