When fitting new pads some people open the bleed nipple when pushing the caliper piston back. It stops the old fluid being pushed back up towards the master cylinder, if thats what you mean.Do you have to bleed the brakes before you move the caliper from disc? (i will go and get my coat)
Mine were a 10mm aswel, what i done though, was grinded the allen key down and fitted a 3/8's 10mm socket on their to get my 3/8's breaker bar on the socket and used my breaker bar to crack them off. As for the rear's iirc theres a grub screw holding the drums on (thats if you've got drum set up rather than disk), not a hub nut that attaches to the spline (had mine off the other week to sort out my rears). Hope you get it all sorted out mate!fitted them today and the cailiper carrier bolts were 10mm not 7 waste of fiver for a deacent alan key o well got them fitted and they looking good also i now stop dead basically just going to get my rears in a couple of weeks
