Default Torque settings for Banjo bolts

Does anyone know the torque settings for the caliper banjo bolts?


Thanks!

Wow! I've tightened 1000s of those and never gave any thought to torque. Sorry, I don't have a clue. The good news is I've never seen them loose; since there'* virtually no torsional load on them.

Oh... you must not have understood PontiacDad'* message. Unless I'm really mistaken...
The bracket bolts are the short bolts that hold the bracket to the knuckle (or spindle); 136ft-lbs.
The caliper bolts are the long slide pin bolts, which I assume you call banjo bolts; 38ft lbs.

The bracket bolts will see a lot of torsional loading and they must be tight.
Make sure the pins are greased and the rubber boots are on correctly and sealed.

No I understood....I was wondering if the banjo bolts also had a torque rating for them.

One thing I discovered is to use new washers for the banjo bolts
