Tool - 7mm Hex/Allen Socket

Most BMWs have a 7mm female hex bolt for their caliper guide bolt (what the caliper slides in and out on). And most common hex / Allen socket sets include a 7mm. But one problem you may find yourself in is that the rear shock interferes with the rear caliper guide bolts. Most off-the-shelf sockets are too long overall to fit in between the shock body and where the guide bolt is. This 'stubby' 7mm Allen is the perfect solution. It takes a 3/8 drive and stands 32mm tall (a comparable Craftsman is over 45mm). The Allen section itself is 13mm which allows it to fully engage the guide bolt and leave the minimum amount hanging outside for your ratchet.

Since the 7mm caliper guide bolt is used on almost all BMWs built since 1982, this tool will prove to be extremely useful to any DIYer. 7mm caliper socket applies to the following BMW models:
E24, E28, E30, E31, E32, E34, E36, E38, E39, E46, E52, E53, E60, E61, E63, E64, E65, E66, E70, E71, E82, E83, E85, E86, E89, E90, E91, E92, E93, F01, F02, F07, F10, F12, F13, Z3, MINI R50, MINI R52, MINI R53
