You are watching: What size wrench to bleed brakes

I"ve been trying invain all day to find a socket or wrench to bleed my brakes, and I cant find anything that fits. It"s odd 9mm is to big, 8mm is to small, and I"ve gone through all of my american sized wrenchs and sockets and I cant get anything on there! I hear I need a 6point socket to do this is this true? Any help is appreciated i"m trying to get her back on the road today.Oh btw its a 89 Comanche, if that makes any diffrence


6 point would be the best if your bleeders havent been moved in a while. I have a 91 and just went through this. I used a 3/8 socket.
