    My wife says the handbrake on her Corsa isn't working well.
    I'm hoping to get the job done tomorrow, but I don't have a socket to
    undo the hub nuts. I would like to pick one up today, but she has the
    car at work so I can't have a look at the hubs to see what size socket
    fits the nuts.
    Does anybody know what size socket I need?
    Cheers

    Probably either 17mm or 19mm, they are the popular sizes. Most local car
    shops have those extending
    wheelbraces that are angled over at one end, and have a reversible socket
    with those 2 sizes on. They arent expensive either.

    I can't remember if it is 27mm or 30mm. Check the cables haven't frayed
    where they go through the slides on the axle.

    those wheelbrace thingys.
