What tools do you need to install a front brake pad on a Neon?
If I had to just go from memory, and I haven't seen a neon in years... I would say 19mm for the lug nuts, 6mm or 7mm Allen for caliper bolts, flat screwdriver to aid in caliper removal and use your preferred method of pushing the caliper back ie C-clamp, channel locks, caliper depressing tool etc
You will need:
- A jack
- Jack stand(s) - I prefer two so I can lift and do both sides.
- Lug nut wrench
- Long thin flat tip screw driver to remove the wheel cover, AND to compress the caliper and to help release the outside pad from the caliper.
- 10mm socket wrench and ratchet, or 10mm ratcheting box end wrench, a regular box end will work but why work harder when you can work smarter.
If you've never done brakes before, it isn't difficult, but it is best to have someone familiar with the process on hand the first time you change the brakes.There are some very informative videos available on sites such as YouTube. I've linked one of these to this answer.

Brake calibers can be rebuilt, but my advice is to just replace it with a new one. Be aware that if one is sticking then more than likely your brake fluid has become contaminate with moisture.
