To remove the 18mm bolts: I Turn the steering wheel all the way to the left,(with car on stands and wheels removed) then with wheel turned left you can get to the bolts on the passenger side caliper easier. I used a shallow 6 pt 1/2" drive socket and breaker bar, and I used the handle of my floor jack as a cheater bar slipped over the breaker bar. Worked great (impact wouldn't touch it). Then turn the steering wheel all the way to the right and do the drivers side.
