    I'm changing my pads tomorrow and wondering if anyone has the caliper bolt torque settings. Thanks.

    I'm an idiot because I torqued the caliper bolt to 70 instead of 26 and broke one. Good thing Napa was still open. Also, just a tip, the caliper piston cannot easily be compressed with the caliper lifted all the way up because it kinks the brake line. Do it with it partially down.

    those pics actually like they are from the ford service manual. I bought a cd off of eBay several months back. Cost me about...$50 I think. The only annoying thing is that it is only valid up until match or April of this year, so if i want to use it then I have to change my clock on my laptop which is easy to do.

    Yup I am betting it is a Helms Manual that someone hacked or copied and boot legged

    ... I'll have to check it. I don't recall any indication in the software of "Helms." Heck, I can even look up every single 2014 Ford vehicle if I wanted to.
