Ideal Rachet Set For General Work To My Car?

I plan to do a few easy jobs to my car when required to such as cleaning the throttle body, carb, possibly change brake pads etc.

I've not got a rachet/socket set and I've noticed you need different sizes for different screws/bolts.

I've recently purchased various torx drill parts but find it hard to remove a few screws so looking for a socket set which would be able to attach to my drill bits to make it easier to remove screws/bolts at eash with a rachet.

Can anyone recommend a cheap, reliable and ideal rachet/socket set?

Got a Corsa if that helps.

Thanks.

go to your local machine mart, buy a cheap one for just occasional use they will be fine. It doesnt have to be extensive as most cars these days can be worked on with about 6 metric sockets..

Thanks for the suggestion.

Looks quite good, I'm not very mechanical but learnt to do the basics, now just need the right tools, had a hard time removing a few bolts before so that set looks quite good.

Thanks.

I'd suggest the 2 Tonne Trolley Jack too for £3.66 but it's been out of stock for a while :

Would buy the top 2 but out of stock, will ring later but not looking to do any work under the car or change brakes myself just yet so wont need them, would be good 2 have them just in case anything goes wrong well.

The Trolley Jack is back in Stock !! :thumbsup:


Rep added, phoned my local but they don't stock them, is it better to buy two (for each side) or one accompanied with the axle stands for extra protection?
