bleeder valve wrench size

I want to bleed my brakes and don't own any wrenches. What size do I need to buy to fit the valve?

That's to bad, There's just enough in there to do most maintence stuff. Keep an eye open for one on Ebay or something. They're really handy to have with you.

The tools are all still available through a dealer if you really must have a set, but it isn't cheap. I ordered everything from our shop and even with my staff discount I paid over a hundred bucks (Cdn) for it. But I wanted the kit so I did it. My garage tools are too clumsy/big to put together something that would fit in the cavity so it seemed like a good idea. Never even thought of E-bay

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound
