To continue on from my parts request:

http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum4/HTML/042921.html

Anyone know what the size of the T40 Torx bolt is that holds the L-shaped parking brake cable bracket onto a '84-87 rear caliper? The local Pontiac dealer can't even find a part number or size for it, other than saying "uh, it's probably something metric." I've already got the new caliper on the car so taking it to a hardware store to try to manually find a solution would be kind of hard. And if I don't find another bracket, I'm probably going to have to resort to drilling the head off the old bolt to try to salvage the old bracket, and I still won't know what to bolt it on with.

If anyone has a paper copy of the P22 parts book, it may be in there. I have one, but I have no clue where it is right now and the CD/PDF version of the P22 is woefully incomplete when it comes to listing the small stuff.

I swear this car doesn't want to make the 25th, it's fighting me every part of the way....

Thanks,
Ken S.

Heh, went through the service manual and P22, no mention of thread size or torque spec. I have some early calipers at home, I'll try to remember and look at them tonight, can probably send you a bolt if you need it.

Ok, tried to take that bolt off of one of my parts cars and ended up braking both my T-40 bits. If I can get the caliper off this weekend I'll buy an impact bit and see if I can get it removed.

It's going to be metric, probably 8mm x 1.25.

I am having the same issue with the torx bolt for my 86GT.

Are the 8 x 1.25 x 20 values all in mm? Seems like a very small bolt compared to the one I am wrestling with. Does anyone know the exact length of this and where I can get a new identical one? What kind of tool was used to extract this bolt? I've tried about everything.
