Front Brake Caliper Bolts

I was putting the front end back together tonight, came to fitting my calipers and I couldn't find the torque wrench settings in my manual but it did say you should change the bolts for new when re-fitting.

Is there a reason for replacing them?

Anyone know what the torque wrench settings are?

According to autodata, for a 96-01 2.0TS, calliper to carrier bolts are:

GTV: 22-32Nm
Spider: 31-38Nm

Dunno why you'd need to renew the bolts...either cos they're one-use-only or new ones come with threadlock pre-applied...

Just put threadlock on, unless they are obviousley corroded or deformed (stretched) - measure the diameter of nonthreaded part across its length with a micrometer.

They seem fine, I very good condition, I'll put some thread lock on them next time I take the wheels off.

Thanks for the feed back on torque settings.

Clean the old Loctite/Threadlock off the bolts first before re-fitting the bolts, and run an appropriate tap through the threaded holes to remove plastic locking material from the thread root/flanks.:
