Torque for Front Caliper Frame bolts???
I have a 2002 C230 Coupe and I just replaced my front rotors and pads. Had to remove the 18 mm frame bolts to get the rotors off. I did not have the torque specs, so I guessed at 110 ft-lbs (My Corvette bolts are 125 ft-lbs!) Then, second guessing myself I called the dealer and they tell me 55 Nm, which is only 40 ft-lbs. I bought new bolts and re-installed them at the 55Nm, but this seems way low. Does anybody know the correct setting? Incidently, got a great deal on OEM rotors - $55 each front and $45 rear from
mercedes-benz-parts-direct.com Free shipping too. Dealer was $100 more for the set.
