Front Master Cylinder Banjo Bolt
« on: June 03, 2018, 10:46:41 AM »
Could anyone please advise me of the front master cylinder banjo bolt 'head' size?

I have loosened the bolt to reposition the front brake line in order to fit barkbusters to my 2018 XCA.  Problem is the bolts appear to be a loose fit 14mm head size but have rounded points unlike conventional bolt heads, upshot is 12 point socket does not grip, so I am considering the purchase of a 6 point wall drive socket but want to make sure of correct size.  Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Get a new banjo bolt, they're cheap.

Tinkering is what happens when you try something you dont quite know how to do, guided by whim, imagination, and curiosity.

I think that you will find that hydraulic banjos are still imperial sized - I had this problem last year on my Explorer - try a 9/16.
