I have the 2004 Focus Shop Manual. (It's $155 from Helm, Inc.)

Wheel lug nuts - 94 lb-ft.
Oil pan drain plug - 21 lb-ft.
Oil filter box seems to contain the only filter tightening specs - 3/4 turn after gasket contact.
Front disk brake caliper retaining bolts (not SVT) - 21 lb-ft.

Brilliant! Thanks much. This is exactly the sort of specs I was looking for.

How would you rate the manual? I have had Chiltons and Haynes manuals in the past, never an official one like this. My experience with the Chiltons and Haynes manuals has been that they have been good for things like torque specs and such, but can sometimes lack in image quality and descriptions of repair processes.

Anyone buy one of these DVD's on ebay? Are they legit?

Can anyone recommend a shop manual?

Thanks again,
