For the caliper mount bolts that are removed during a brake pad change, 1/2" is a good fit on my 1996 F250. 13mm will fit but is a little sloppy. Were you asking about the "caliper bracket" instead?

Changing seals on a brake caliper is relatively easy.It's the disassembly and reassembly that is the hard part when putting the piston back in.First of all,the type of caliper is important.Can you tell me what type it is? And is it front or rear? Rear wheel calipers can be especially hard depending on the vehicle.The use of pneumatic tools is needed for this type of repair and a cylinder hone to clean the bore of the caliper also.If you want more details,I'll watch this question.Good luck!
The size is 9mm hex. It needs to be long enough to reach the recessed caliper bolt.
The caliper bolts are 13 mm, so use a socket or wrench, if not too tight. a "C" clamp works well to push the caliper piston back into the caliper housing. That's it, change the pads and put back together. Also, best to use some brake cleaner to clean the old brake pad dust from the caliper and rotor, and should use some lub on the new pads at all points that contact the caliper. Have the rotor turned if they seem to be scored, if not don't turn them. Turning the rotors will thin the surface, making them more prone to heat warping.

With aftermarket or hang on parts not original to a vehicle some modification may be needed. If the caliper is hitting the inside of the wheel some light grinding of the caliper may be needed for clearance.
