Brakes

You do not need to remove the calipers or the

rotors to replace the brakes. The rotor screws just need to be firm. The

rotors are not supported by the screws. The calipers are about 50 to 80 ft-lbs. Send

a request in the part section.

I own a 2007 GT3 for which I have purchased new rear brake pads, Pagid Yellow 19's. I will appreciate someone providing the torque spec for brake caliper bolts and rotor screws. Thanks in advance!

On the GT3s, you DO have to remove the calipers to change the pads.

Some recommend that you replace the rear caliper bolts everytime you remove them to chage pads. I can't find the link, but I understood the proper torque for the caliper bolts to be between 60 and 65 ft-lbs.

Over time, the threads will fail, and you will have to do something. I just inserted two timeserts over the weekend. There is a discussion on this topic over at rennlist.

I do not know why you have to remove the calipers. I would

just pull the pin (#15), spread the calipers, and pull the pads.

Not sure what to tell you. Here are some pics of the rear rotors on 997 GT3

These pics are PCCB, but my steel ones are the same (I just changed the pads). There is a solid bar across the outside of the caliper, and you have to take the caliper off the rotor to remove the pads.
