It should be 3/8" if it's a hex, or T-50 if it's a star (Torx).

What do you do if the C clamp will not push the ear of the brake caliper in so you can change the pads on a 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme?

Look at the pistons in the caliper. If it is a cup type piston there could be several reasons for this, (requiring researching technical manuals). But if it is a solid piston with what appears to be 4 raised tabs around the piston in a + configuration this suggests that you may need to screw the piston back into the caliper turning it clockwise. Sometimes this takes quite a bit of turning. Otherwise the pistons are stuck, or you might need to open the bleed screws and compress the pistons as some vehicles have one-way pressure valves in the system. . To add a '96 cutlass caliper piston has to be screwed in clockwise with also applying steady pressure

Remove the two bolts holding the caliper over the rotor, remove caliper. You may have to gently persuade it with a dead blow or hammer. Once removed the pads come off by pushing them out. Use a clamp to press the caliper piston back into the caliper or you won't be able to put the caliper back over the rotor with the new pads installed. Now simply work in reverse order installing the pads and caliper, bleed your brakes, and hit the road.

How do you remove rotor on 1988 cutlass supreme?

You need to remove the caliper. Usually there are 2 bolts/pins that go through the calipers, holding them in place. Once the calipers are off, the rotors should come off quite easily. If it's a front wheel vehicle, the rotor should just pull off. If it's a rear wheel vehicle, the rotor is often integral to the wheel bearing and hub. For a rear wheel caliper, just pull the center wheel bearing cotter pin, nut, remove the wheel bearings and pull the rotor.
