Apologies if this is a duplicate but I can't seem to find the answer in the other cambelt change posts. I'm changing the variator, cambelt, water pump, balancer belt plus associated idlers etc on a 2005 156 JTS I've just bought and I can't seem to find what the torque setting is for the cambelt idler (non adjustable idler that sits to the right of the cambelt tensioner). I've got the torque settings for the cambelt tensioner pulley, the inlet and exhaust cam bolts etc but can't seem to find the recommended torque for the other idler. It's the one with the 13mm bolt head on it. Has anyone got any idea what it's supposed to be torqued up to? Thanks in advance.

Thanks Henrik, you're a star. I've been trying to install eLearn but haven't had much success doing so. From what you've posted it'll be the top one at 23 - 28Nm. Perfect, thanks for the very quick response.
