Torque specs for V70 2013 brakes

Post by danexx23 » Sat Oct 07, 2017 6:05 am

Hi,

I am planning to change my front pads and discs in my v70 but couldn't find torque specs for the caliper bracket mounting screws.
Would there be a kind soul there to help me out with this?

Thanks
Dan

Anyone? There must be someone who either done similar job before, or has some info about it. Mine are 16.5 inch discs and caliper bolts are M14.

Are these twin piston calipers?

If not you only need to remove the guide pins, remove the caliper cover, re-lubricate the guide pins and push the piston back. Caliper bracket removal is therefore unnecessary and to be avoided as you ideally don't want to be removing bolts with factory thread lock.

Therefore you only need the guide pin torque specs which wouldn't be high given their size; probably about 20Nm.

I actually needed to remove caliper with holding bracket as was also replacing discs.
Caliper to hub bolts are 200Nm.
Guide pins are 28Nm
Confirmed by Haynes manual and Vida.

Thanks,

Daniel

Reread your post. You DID say pads and Discs. Got to get out of the habit of answering posts at 4am. Glad you found the info.
