Welcome to the Forum. Well on brake lugs just tighten em hard no torque setting, just be careful after putting in the new fluid because your brakes gonna have bunch of air, so you have to air them down if you know how to do that, or take it to the closest shop to air them down, because in other case your brakes gonna be bad.

You might want to take a look at the DIYs in the 210 forum both for brake replacement and flushing, same setup.

Rotors are really held on by the 80 lb/ft lug bolts although there is a little countersunk set screw in each one.

Hardest part of the job will be removing the rotors, they tend to weld themselves to the hubs.

Also, look closely at the caliper bolts before you start loosening them, at least one member separated his calipers and leaked fluid by loosening the wrong ones. ;)

Not a tough job, nice satisfaction to save all the labor charges.

Take care and enjoy the ride,
Greg
