    Spanner size?

    Hi,

    Was gonna bleed my brakes today. Got as far as lookong for the right spanners but can't find any that fir the bleed nipple.

    It would appear that the rear is smaller than the fron but I can't seem to find either that fit.

    Anyone actually know what size they both are?

    Thanks

    p.s. I have done a search but to no avail.....

    I can't remember exactly what size but they are different front to back. They're in the range 6-9mm.

    front caliper 9mm
    rear drum 7mm
    or if it has rear discs 10mm or 11mm though probably drums on a 1.6
