    Which bolt are you looking for? I have my '96 LC FSM with me and can check.

    4 bolts holding the compressor to the block are 18 lb-ft
    discharge and suction hoses are 7 lb-ft
    idler pulley is 29 ft-lbf

    New belt 100-150 lbf

    Used belt 60-100 lbf

    This is using a belt tension gauge!

    If thats what you're looking for, the bolts...I'll have to look up.

    My fsm says 29 ft-lbf for the idler pulley

    REMOVAL
    1. LOOSEN IDLE PULLEY LOCK NUT
    Torque: 39 N·m (400 kgf·cm, 29 ft·lbf)
    2. REMOVE COMPRESSOR DRIVE BELT
    Loosen the adjusting bolt and remove the drive belt.
