You can buy a set of E sockets from Halfords at £13 or from screwfix, I think that the Screwfix has more sizes

I do not know how they work the sizes out, the E6 that I used to repair my ABS pump was so tiny, and had no connection with any mm size. I saw the Halfords set today, their tools are quite good
