Default 2004 Bonneville SSE / Caliper Bolt

Hello,

I'm helping my friend out on his 2004 Bonneville SSE 6 cyl. He let the brake pads wear down and ruined the front driver side rotor. When he reinstalled the caliper mounting bolts he didn't tighten them enough and the lower one came out. I suggested to him to order the factory manual so we have proper torque settings for everything in the future. Since I will be helping him tomorrow, I would like to confirm from some older postings that the caliper mounting bolt is 136 ft/lbs and that the caliper bracket are 38 ft/lbs. Thanks for all of help.

Nick
