    Default Caliper guide bolts

    Hi, does anyone know the size/type of the rear caliper guide bolts on a 1.8 (04 reg) Vectra? I had rear pads replaced about 2 or 3 months ago and they are squealing like mad when warm. Im thinking about wacking on a bit of copper grease myself (it doesnt look too bad in the Haynes manual), many thanks for any replies.

    Well, i found the right size allen key, removed and greased the rear brakes (in the appropriate places) and all seems well. Thanks for help (great to have a source of help/support).
