Does anyone have access to the service manual, and can tell us the torque values for:

1. Front Caliper Mounting Bolts. I believe these might be single-use TTY fasteners that need replaced each time they are removed.
2. Front Caliper guide pin bolts. Sometimes called caliper slides.
3. Bleeder screw.

4, 5, 6 - Same items for the rear.

Also - do front and rear pistons go straight in, or do either need to be turned counter-clockwise to retract them into the caliper housing?

Thank you!

Steverino, the torque values for the front Caliper Guide Pin Bolts appear to be erroneous. I believe it should be the same as the values for the rear -- 28 Nm, 21 lb. Certainly, the 9 Nm shown for the front does not convert to 80 lb ft. If the 9 Nm is correct, the conversion is 6.6 lb ft (80 lb in).
