I'm at my parents changing the front rotors and forgot my manual (I did remember the torque wrenches)


So, what the torque specs for the following:


caliper sliding pins

&

caliper bracket to steering knuckle bolts



thanks

Whoops, I was thinking of a different front caliper setup..........


No bracket that covers up the disk.



Just need the sliding pin torque


thanks

Those slider pins are in the "snug" category, tight enough that they won't vibrate loose is adequate. Just tighten down & don't wrench on them too hard.

Bracket if you'd done it would be "gut-n-tight", just less force than needed to break them loose.

I've got no specs on hand, and never used them on those pieces.

That sounds good, I didn't want to specify a guess.

Tables for torque listing fastener size & thread pitch work for std. bolts, often included with torque wrenches.

It's hard to describe how tight in words, I actually use three different size 3/8 drive ratchets for different purposes & with each it could be a soft, moderate or hard pull used depending on fastener type & size.

Snug sounds great on the those caliper slide pins, no wreafing on them.
