Allen Bolt Size on 2008 Expedition EL Front Brakes

Anyone know what size allen wrench I need to remove the calipers from the front brakes on a 2008 Expedition. They must have upped the size for that year. I tried both a 10mm and a 3/8". Both too small!

So...where does one get a 9mm allen head wrench (socket or wrench). I tried advance auto and harbor freight. Anyone successful?

paid $7 for a SAE and $9 for a Metric allen set. Each one had 5-6 sizes. Got them from Advance Auto. Just look in the generic tools section of your local Auto Parts store. Any decent one will carry them

I have a metric set but it is missing both the 7 and 9 MM.
