    What size?

    hiya i just wanna know if anyone knows the size of they allen key (or however yer spell it, sorry) it is to remove the front brake calipers on an 02 plate astra 1.8sxi. I have this really weird problem that whenever i turn right i can hear metal on metal grinding but as soon as i strighten up again the grinding vanishes. me personally put it down to worn pads but when braking there is no grinding at all, I'e had me front wheels off and had a quick check on the thickness of the pads and even tho they do definately need changing they are not all the way down yet. Anyone else got any idea's please, Cheers

    I think its 7mm.

    Check the back plate behind the disc. They can get bent towards the disc siometimes.
