Re: Front disc change

As an old codger taught in the days when torque was measured in lbs/feet, does the torque setting you give of 9.9/11.0(daNm) translate to 9 Newton Metres?

Re: Front disc change

Hey, kinda unrelated but I managed to snap the alignment bolts that hold the discs in alignment (don't ask how, it's dumb). With a bit of difficulty I managed to align both the discs and wheels and put the wheels on. Does anyone know if the alignment bolts serve any strength purpose of just for the purpose of alignment. I've been driving my car a while and my brakes are all working fine since the wheel bolts hold on the discs and the wheels. Anyone know if this is still safe?

Re: Front disc change

It seems to me like the bolts are only for alignment to make the wheels easier to put on. The wheel bolts also hold them in alignment and as far as I can tell provide the strength to hold everything together. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Talking Re: Front disc change

19mm caliper across flat carrier bolts Torque 9.9 11.0 (daNm)
13mm across flats caliper bolts torque to 2.7 3.3 (daNm)
T30 torx bolts torque 0.9 1.4 (daNm)


Great guide. Can anyone try to explain to me how you work out the torque settings. rather new to al this and i was under the impression it was simply someone told you the amount so e.g 120Nm for locking wheel nuts. But this 9.9 11.0??? completely lost

So to sum up how do i work out the actual specific Nm to set my torque wrench too.

thanks alot guys
