Default Brake Caliper Bolt Torque

I just replaced pads & rotors on My '96 SL1, anyone know what I need to torque my caliper bolts to?

Hope I recall right, it's around 27ft-lb for each Cal bolt.
For pads replacement only, you only need to take out the LOWER bolt, the Cal can flip up. (Don't kink the brake hose).

81 ft. lbs. or 110 Nm

Thats the info I have with me at work. I would have to double check with the FSM when I get home.

Thanks, I tried calling the dealership, but they won't even let me talk to a tech.

No way the Caliper bolts are torqued that high!
Are you talking about S-series here? :o:

It should be around 27ft-lb range.

Imagine the Wheel Nuts are torqued at 104 ft-lb.

27 ft-lbs sounds right, but it felt like 81 trying to get them off

Yeah, after I read it and typed it, I kinda questioned the amount. It sure as heck feels like it when you remove them though. I think the info I found might of been referring to the caliper bracket to hub assembly torque.

you are correct, sir!

caliper support to steering knuckle bolts = 81 ft/lbs
caliper guide pin bolts = 27 ft/lbs

looking at the 96 s-series tech manual now. (not the haynes or chilton, but the manual that the saturn techs use)...
