I used a combination of open and closed-face wrenches as well as a ratchet wrench to get the three stud bolts out. My 1995 Ford Explorer required a 10mm (metric) size socket. Although each bolt was the same size, the different tools were needed in order to get into the small space to get them out and back in place.
