Hello, welcome to the board.

Normally for Mercedes it's 35 Nm.

According to WIS, it's 30 Nm, which I believe is equivalent to 265.5 pound-inches or about 22 lb-feet.

The 2001 ML320 has floating calipers attached to the hub assembly by two bolts that act as the slides.

The Torx bolts are becoming more common. Just do like me: Whenever I have a new "project", I use it as an excuse to buy a new tool. I can easily justify the cost of the new tool because I am still saving so much money on the DIY job over paying a “professional�. I have collected many great tools as part of various projects around the house and on the car. My wife now knows that whenever we decide to tackle a new project, there’s a “materials budget� and a “tool budget�. By the way, if you’ve ever run across any of those “security� style fasteners, Sears sells a nice set for about $20. I bought one today so I can remove the transmission shifter to fix my touchy Touchshift. It’s attached to the body with female Torx bolts that have a center pin, so a regular male Torx driver won’t work – it has to have a hole in it.
