This weekend I changed all brake discs and pads. Front callipers bracket bolts were so tighten and the most difficult part was to remove them. In the end, I managed to replace everything and to change brake fluid only on one front calliper and one rear calliper. The nipples where also very tighten and I was afraid to use force and to damage threads.
I tightened the front callipers bracket bolts to around 130 Nm. That is my torque wrench maximum.
Should I tight them more? The wheel bolts are supposed to be tighten around 130 Nm and they have the same dia. Like posted, E-learn says 190 - 270 Nm for front callipers bracket bolts, this sounds too much to me.
