22mm is pretty common in the Range Rover world. This was the lug size on my '04.

BTW, if you can not find a 22mm, a 7/8 in socket will be "close enough", 22mm is not real common, but 7/8 in is very easy to find in the US.

Hope i am making some sense.
It is perfectly clear to me, I have had to face off many a socket to get maximum surface area on a nut. If you could give a measurement of the final diameter of the socket it would be helpful. Also did you use a deep socket or a standard? Six point I assume. BTW a lathe makes this operation quite easy.

Last month I also had to remove the ABS-pump. The 2 bolts gave me aan head ache.
In the end I used a nippers (is that the right word?). I uses new bolts (M6) when I reinstalled the pump.

Thanks for the help
Yes. Definitely thin wall socket is needed. I had to have the socket machined to fit. Sorry but do not remember the size and no possibility now to get to the bike to measure the size of it or the socket.

Re: 2000 k1200lt abs piston cleaning

I would try;
Measure the width of nut so you know what size socket you need, then grind some cheap socket down till it fits, no need to go buy a special thin wall one...

2000 k1200lt abs piston cleaning

Hi Everyone: I have decided to take my abs unit apart and clean the pistons on my 200o k1200lt. My problem is I am trying to take the nuts off that are below the bleeder screws. Can anyone tell me the size of these nuts and the proper way to get them off.
