Santa said I could buy a breaker bar for each of our Pilots!
I'm going to get a HF breaker bar, and will need the correct socket to go on each.
I'm also getting a clicky Torque wrench too! I currently have an OLD- beam type- too hard to really see exactly where the little needle is pointing too, etc. I want to feel the click.

I searched, but couldn't readily find the socket size for the lug bolt?

TIA

If you torque your own lug nuts to spec, you won't need a breaker bar to loosen them. It's the guys in some tire and brake shops you gotta worry about. I've learned to retorque my lug nuts after a tire change, rotation/rebalance, flat fix, brake job, etc.
Some torque wrenches can be used on both right and left hand threads. If you get one of those, it should be able to safely loosen anything you tighten with it.

The 1/2 " HF Pittsburgh Torquely wrenchy thingy is only $9.99 w/ coupon right now!!
Mixed reviews, but it should work OK.

Thanks for the opinions about the lugs, torque, etc. I agree w/ you.
Hand tight is enough. No need for torque tool. But it's just me.

15% off everything at HF this weekend.

I've got both the 1/2" and 3/8" HF torque wrenches. They're fine. If I was using them every day, I would probably upgrade, but if my muscle memory is an accurate indicator, they're pretty consistent.

Their breaker bar is a no-brainer, though. Long, cheap, heavy. For a tool that's about brute force anyway, it's perfect.

Ha! Just purchased the 1/2” click torque wrench and a set of 1/2” sockets to the tune of ~$30 today from HF. Picked up some plastic trim removal tools while I was there, too. For things you don’t use often, HF is the place!

My cross bars might be from there too....😬

I'm going to tempt fate here and just answer off the top of my head without reading previous answers or checking the manual.

Here goes:19mm

After bravely hitting "Post reply" (or "Fools rush in where saints fear to tread"), I will check posthumously.

Ooh, I nailed it from memory. The exhilaration! Working without a net. I've never felt so alive.



(Of course I was referring to the 1st gen, it goes without saying.)
