Front brake caliper pin bolt torque?


Recommended Posts

Well, demand compensation Karl!!! :o :help: So did my car get new style brakes as well as new style crankcase?

Here is a picture of outer end of the pin. You can see its not like the regular pin. This end of the pin has a bolt like head on it with shoulders that mate against the adjacent edges of the calipers.


And here is a picture of the other, inner end. Sorry for the focus, I was too lazy to remove the wheel and just held the camera as best I could. On this end of the pin you can see the bolt, just lower left of picture center.

Well, I'll be darned, this must a be a change for the 6 piston calipers. I just checked my car and it does indeed have a bolt for the front caliper pad retaining spring. Apparently all of the Cup cars with the 6 piston calipers have it as well. Not sure why they changed it but I assume there is some kind of issue with holding the larger pads for the 6 piston calipers and the little R-clip just wasn't up to the task. It will certainly make changing pads take a little more time.

Did anyone ever find the spec torque for this bolt?


I have not. I looked in the street and cup car service manuals, no luck.

I've been using about 10ftlbs along with blue locktite for a while now. Seems to work fine.

What is the torque spec for the GT3 front brake caliper pin bolt? This is the bolt on the end of the heavy duty pin holding the brake pads and spring in place.


How did you get the subject pin bolt off? Mine are VERY tight. Is the thread cw or ccw? The pin bolt head will rotate only a few degrees. Thanks.
