The Rear Caliper Bottom Bolt head size is 12 mm. The Top bolt is enclosed only making it a slide bolt therefore you cant and really have no need to remove it. So the only bolt you should remove is the bottom 12mm head bolt. Then there will be a 14mm bolt that will hold the Emergency Brake Cable Bracket to the Caliper. Loosen this bolt and remove the Emergency Brake Cable Bracket from the Caliper. Then pry the bottom of the caliper up off the disc. This will allow you to swing the caliper up then push the caliper back to slide the caliper off the enclosed bolt slide at the top of the caliper. This will allow access to the inside and outside pads to remove them and allow you to press and rotate the Piston (Push and Twist-in Pistons) back into the Caliper with the right Brake Caliper Compression tool. The rear two Caliper Bracket bolt head sizes are 18mm. You must remove the Caliper bracket in order to remove the rear brake disc. The Front Brake Caliper Bolt is a 3/8" Allen head bolt. There will be two bolts holding the front calipers to the Spindle. The Front calipers are standard push-in Pistons.
To replace brake pads and rotor: Unbolt wheel, unbolt caliper, remove caliper, unbolt caliper bracket, remove rotor, replace rotor, bolt up bracket, compress caliper, replace pads, replace caliper, bolt up caliper, bolt up wheel, repeat whole thing on other side...
not sure from your question which caliper bolts you mean. the caliper to mounting braket bolt is 63 foot-pounds (these are the two bolts per caliper that you remove to change the pads. They are a pin and pass through a rubber boot). caliper mounting bracket to suspension is 137 foot-pounds (these are the two bolts per bracket that you also remove if you are changing the rotor disk). the factory uses red loctite on them and they are a bear to get out.
Disengage the parking brake before attempting to remove the caliper.
Remove wheel, remove the bolt holding brake hose to the caliper, remove the two pins that hold the caliper to the caliper bracket using a 3/8" allen wrench, remove caliper. Inspect brake pads and brake hose for damage, replace if necessary. Install new brake caliper in reverse order. Bleed system.
The caliper mounting bracket, in 99% of vehicles, needs to be unbolted from the axle before it will release the rotor. There are usually only two bolts holding it. Sometimes you can remove the top bolt, loosen the bottom and swing the mounting bracket out of the way. Sometimes you have to take both bolts completely out and dismount the bracket.
Assuming this is a 4+4 vehicle, the caliper bolts on to the caliper bracket. The caliper bracket bolts on to the steering knuckle.

Unfasten the bottom bolt ,lift the caliper up ( Its on a spring and hinge ) remove the pads . Screw the piston clockwise until it bottoms out , then lower the caliper and reinstall the lower bolt.
brake caliper bushings are the rubber mounts that sit inside the caliper bolt holes. They help guide the bolts when bolting the caliper up to the caliper bracket.

The knuckle bolts on the brake caliper bracket for a 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass can be a problem to get loose because of rust and dirt buildup. A bolt loosening spray, like Liquid Wrench, can help free the bolt.
This is a pretty easy brake job, once you realize how to deal with the top caliper bolt. To start, set ebrake, jack and secure vehicle. Remove tire... The caliper looks like most disc brake calipers at first. You use a metric 14mm socket to remove lower caliper bolt. The top "bolt" is not really a bolt at all. Its basically just a hole on the caliper that slides onto a shaft that is attached to the caliper bracket. All you do is remove that lower bolt, the insert a screwdriver between the lower side of the caliper and the bracket and pry it up and out. The entire caliper will pivot up and then you push it towards the center of the vehicle and it will slide right off. You simply remove the pads and use a C-clamp to compress the brake piston back to a fully open position and then insert new pads and reassemble. *Note: You will want to remove the brake fluid cap before you compress the brake pistons on both sides. Then check fluids and secure the cap again when done. Your initial brake pedal step will go to the floor and then it will pump tight. Do a test drive and you should be good to go...
