    S4 (B5) brake discs/pads torque settings

    OK, Eurocarparts delivered the new discs and pads - so yetserday I started to change them - stripped out the front discs, fitted the new ones - then realised the pads were wrong So started on the rears and foung they'd sent the wrong discs and wrong pads

    So put it all back together and am now waiting for replacements... but I did realise when I put it all back together that I dont have the correct torque settings... what I need are torque settings for;

    front calipers - the 2 x 18mm bolts which hold the calipers on.
    rear calipers - the 2 x 8mm hex bolts which hold the calipers on.
    wheel nuts.

    Can anyone help?

    I generally use the Tight setting.

    Ive never actually used a torque wrench on my brake calipers or on any suspension component tbh, just do them up as tight as i can.
