Rear brake caliper bolt size??

Has anyone done a brake job here themselves? I'm having a hard time figuring out what size the hex bolts are that hold the calipers on. I found a wk2 owner that did a how-to on the front and he stated they are 10mm. Backs are def not...
They aren't 8mm or 6mm.

I guess I'll eventually figure it out via process of elimination, but it would be cheaper if i could just go buy the correct size...

Anyone here know?

9MM hex and 18MM on caliper bracket bolts. Fronts are a 11 , 10 will work but the hex will turn it out but will be stuck in there and u will need to turn it clockwise to free it , caliper bracket bolts are 21MM

Right and I wouldn't have any money to buy anything else either. Stock brakes work fine! The GC is not a race car....
