    My mom has a 2003 Honda CRV. With my dad's passing, car maintenance is a challenge for her, so I offered to do her needed brake job. That thing is a mess with rust. Ended up putting a new caliper (seized) on it too. New rotors, new pads and a new caliper. What was odd about it was that the caliper bolts were different sized from passenger side to driver's side. Really odd...anyone seen this before? 14mm on the passenger side, 12mm on the driver's....just weird.

      Maybe somebody had to change the bolts before, and the replacements had a different size head.

        That’s what I’d bet, too.

          I thought about that too, except that there was equivalent rust levels on both. You would think if someone swapped a caliper, the rust level would have been less on that side? Did I mention it has a rust problem? My 2001 Saleen has 1/100th the rust level of that thing. Less mileage I guess, but not by a ton. Guess I don't drive the Saleen in the nasty weather though....

          I just found myself scratching my head as to what socket I was going to need next. Pretty weird.
