OT Need a torque spec quick

Doing front brakes on my mother-in-law's 99 Taurus and would like to have the official torque spec for the caliper mounting bolts. Anybody?

If no body knows I'll tighten them until surrounding metal turns pink and leave it at that. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wall.gif[/img]

Re: OT Need a torque spec quick

Hey, I'm a pretty fart smeller! I guessed 86 and set them accordingly, but I feel much better now. Thanks!

Then I looked in the owner's manual for a spec for the lug nuts. It says "Tighten completely . . ." so I did. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Thanks again!
