    You best let me double check but I'm pretty confident it is 50Nm (does sound high huh).

    Many thanks guys, be interesting to see which calipers mine has on it , as it appears from all those diagrams , it looks like I could have a choice of two , one where the slider bolts are the same at 28Nm (have a cap covering them) or two, where the pins are different and the bolts for those are at 50Nm.
    Cheers Pete

    Stripped the front brakes down today, hardest part was getting the damn road wheels off , rusted on like a goodun, had to use a block of wood and hammer to bang round the wheels , got to say don't like doing this with alloys wheels, even tried loosening the wheels nuts sufficiently to move the car back and forth whilst slamming the brakes on to try and free them, but weren't having any of it, but at least banging them eventually got 'em off!! , slider pins looked like they'd never seen any grease!!, anyway all cleaned up , including disc hub and inner wheels and pins greased etc ( mine turned out to be the callipers where the pins are torqued up to 28Nm) and hopefully brakes will be a bit more free to move than they were!! Incidentally my pads had what looked like the word ' Pac' and a part number any one heard of these?
    Cheers Pete
