What size Allen wrench is required to change front brake pads on a 1994 Chevy Cavalier and are any special tools required to change rear drum pads?

1/4" or 10MM Hex- caution- some use the torx bolts. The rear you may need a tool to twist the piston back into the caliper. On some, a screw on the back of the caliper is turned to draw the piston back in. If your car has anti-lock brakes, then open the bleeder screws on the calipers before pushing the pistons in. That way, you won't be pushing dirt back up into the ABS hydraulic unit.

The symbol of a wrench in a Cavalier Dash usually means service required. This generally means that the vehicle should be checked by a mechanic for an issue.

All Cavaliers from '94 to '04 use a 3/8 Allen key on calipers.

no special tools required except a plug wrench most socket sets have plug sized sockets in them

No..maybe a oil filter wrench to remove it, but, install it by hand (HAND TIGHT)
