Need to change pads and turn rotors on the r4ear of a 32v southwind motor home(Ford chasis). Bolts that hold calipers on are size 15/16s and extremly tight. Any suggestioins on h0w to brake them loose. Do not want to use heat due to the proximitry of rubber components. Could not get impact hammer in area to use it.

If mine were tight I would spray with a good penetrating oil and let set awhile. Then a little force with a hammer on the wrench. It works for me.

Try going to rental company to see if they have a 4ft breaker bar, just changed out my calipers and pads, and that did the trick.

Try a hand impact you use a socket and hit it hard

If you're using a regular lug wrench, try adding a length of pipe. You might have to prop it up near the lug nut to make the wrench turn correctly.

Have a source for replacement bolts FIRST. Slider bolts should not be torqued too tight, but caliper mounting bracket bolts can be VERY tight. I always break at least one.
