I am just doing a Post on what tools are needed for servicing/Bolt head sizes for a Suzuki Swift Gt. This is for Factory bolts only and I WILL be adding on here in the next few days/This is just off the top of my head at 12:31 A.M. So Kiddies,if you dont have these sizes,GET THEM!!Common sizes are 8mm,10mm12mm,14mm,15mm,17mm,and IICR the Stock Lug Nuts are 19mm and the biggest socket size needed is a 30mm.Numerous Phillips.As for 6 Point and 12 Point,12 Point would work fine,But for really rusted out stuff,I'd Use 6 Point sockets. 6 Point will handle Higher Torque than a 12 Point. ALSO what will help breaking free rusted Bolts/Nuts is a Hand Impact Driver.

Engine Oil Pan Plug 17mm Bolt
Distributer cap Bolts 8mm
Transmission Fill hole 24 MM Bolt(Best to use a 6 point)
Trans drain Plug 10mm Square(Or can use a 3/8 ratchet,but the 10mm square is a better fit.)
Front Seats 12mm Bolts
Rear Seats #2 or a #3 Phillips Screwdriver
Rear Taillights #2 or a #3 Phillips Screwdriver
Front Corner lights #2 Phillips screwdriver
Front Bumper Turn Signals #2 Phillips Screwdriver
Front headlights have a hidden bolt in the fenderwell right by the corner lights. It is kinda a pain if you dont have the right tool. a Short 10mm Wrench will get her tuning.All headlight Bolts are 10mm
Distributer T40 Torx
Underdrive Pulley bolts. Now I have seen 8MM head Bolts and 5mm Hex.
Valve Cover 8mm
Spark Plug Socket 13/16
Rotor #2 Phillips,But is secured by Blue Threadlock.I would advise to change over to a Tamper-proof Torx from a MAF on a Ford.All you have to do is silghtly cut off a few threads,clean it up and secure.Reason why is because this Phillps head LOVES to strip out.
Shifter Knob Thread Pitch 12mmx1.25mm
MAF sensor #2 Phillips
Wheel Bolt Pattern 114.3(Or 4.5)
Lug Nut Size 12mmx1.25mm
For a Oil Filter tool,I just Use a Pair Oil Filter Pliers from Mac Tools.They work Great.
More to come tomorrow.

I have to disagree here. The only thing that works for me on these is a drill. :(
