I am in the middle of replacing the rear calipers (one piston was severely damaged - story to follow later). Looked in the FSM and did a search here. No luck. I'm sure it is there someplace, but I'll be danged if I can find it.

Anyone know the torque for the banjo bolt on the rear brakeline to the rear calipers?

Thanks a million!

Cancel that - for the archives - on the '96 it is 22 lb/ft.

Sometimes the stuff is buried in the FSM in strange places.

Like, for example, why is the rear disk removal hidden under the "Emergency Brake" section???

Sorry to bug you guys with such a trivial question. I was just stuck and didn't know where to turn. Last thing I wanted to do was overtorque the banjo bolt, I've seen them sheer with too much torque (on an oil cooler once).

All is good. Only thing left is to bleed the suckers.
