    What tool sizes have you used on your Abarth?

    I know there was a thread about tools a while back that also got into jacks, stands, etc. I'm looking to put together a tool kit for the car and am wondering what size sockets/torx/allen etc you have encountered while doing any upgrades/repairs on your Abarth. Normally I'd throw a bag of everything in the spare tire well or something but with limited space in the Abarth I'm trying to pare down what I don't need. If a 10-piece metric socket set only has 4 sizes that are needed I don't want to carry them all. Some of these may not end up living in the everyday bag once identified but my goal is to have one tool bag just for the Abarth and work out of that so I know if I'm missing something.

    I'll update the list with feedback, let's see if we can come up with a complete list of sizes needed

    So far I have

    Sockets:
    7mm - fuel door
    10mm - intake hoses/engine cover
    13mm - battery tray (for ECU removal)
    17mm (in 1/2 drive) for wheel lugs
    21mm (suspension)
    27mm for oil filter cap

    *please note if any of these had to be deep sockets at all

    Obviously with the size range these will likely need 1/4, 3/8 and 1/2 drive to be a complete set, likely with some extensions for each

    Wrenches:
    10mm for battery terminals (could use socket as well but wrench seems easier)
    12mm for wheel studs

    Torx:
    I've seen T-25 for interior bits, not sure about others
    T-50 for rear seat delete kit
    E-18 torx for suspension bits

    Allen:
    5mm (from short shifter install)
    6mm was mentioned but I don't know what it is for

    Obviously appropriate pliers, standard phillips, small flathead, etc. Some might say a crescent/adjustable wrench but I'd rather have the correct size end wrenches than bust one of those out.

    Edited...you mentioned what I was thinking about!
    I'd say the 17mm for wheels needs to be deep, plus a torque wrench if you want to do it right

    I'd ensure the 17mm was a 6 point socket.

    Some may remember this toolkit that came with old Fiats. You could take apart what nearly seemed the entire car with these tools. There were four main sizes - 8, 10, 13 and 17mm . Other tools were a 12mm for the brake disc locating dowl, an 12mm allen for the oil drain plug, a 19 and I think a 21mm or 24mm were pretty much it. When I started working on Fiats in the 1970s, it was a huge revelation on how logical they were with bolt sizes. The new cars have more sizes needed, which I was little sad to see because it ended the tradition, but that's progress I guess.

    Thanks sir! That's what I've had in mind. A kit like motorcycles come with - although, with higher quality tools.

    A 17MM deep is needed to swap coilovers as well. The top nut on the strut need a long socket.

    Yeah, seems like every time I tackle a new job on my Abarth I find a new size/type of fastner!
