Hey guys,

Changed out my front brake pads on my '96 250 this weekend and ran into a snag putting the caliper slide bolts back in. My service manual does not have a torque value for the bolts. I googled it and found one site that gave a value of 50 ft lbs. Seemed like a lot, but I went for it and promptly snapped two bolts. Ouch. Well, I dug the broken bolts out, got some replacements, and just snugged em. However, I don't want one to fall out on the road. Can anyone tell me the right torque for those bolts?

Thanks!

German tight, and if you really worry about it then one drop of blue lock-tite.
