    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.
