Default 1 of those nights.Where can I get a 16MM wrench?

I'm replacing a power steering hose. Simple 5 min job.

15 is to small, 17 is too big. a 5/8 fits the aftermarket.

But I can't get anything to fit correct on the factory.

It is too tight to break with the 17mm.
And my brother ran off with my cresson wrenches.


What size is equal to the 16mm.

16mm fits right between 5/8" and 11/16". It may be a little too big though.

Do you have a wal-mart around that's open late? You might be able to find a one-time-use wrench there.

If this helps:

Take a bigger wrench and put a flat screw driver across from it to make up the difference. Not sure how much room u got.

A guy installed a a/c compressor for me and let the line hit the mani. I didn't notice until it started leaking.

I'm going to drive to the shop tomorrow and let him break it. Then I will finish changing it in the parking lot.

If my loving wife could ever get home from Krogers, I could of drove somewhere and bought one.

I'm not sure why it takes 2 hrs to go to the grocery store or Target?

Celebrated my 28th anniversary last night.

I got there by not asking questions like these. It doesn't do any good -- just increases your risk for heart disease.

In my neighborhood:
O'Reilly's is open until 10pm.
VatoZone is open until 11pm. There used to be some around open 24hrs. Irving I think.
