Default 2015 Buick Verano Front Brakes

I have a 2015 Buick Verano that I want to replace the front rotors and pads. My questions are:

1. Are the caliper mounting bracket bolts the new torque-to-yield bolts that will need replaced?
2. Does anyone know the torque specs for the caliper mounting bracket bolts and the caliper bolt?

Thanks for looking!

Based on GM Late-Model Brake Job - Tomorrows Technician it looks like TTY bolts would likely be required if you have to remove a caliper bracket to do any of this. I haven't personally seen one, but have done lots of others. I can't imagine they would have redesigned such that the a caliper bracket was a permanent part of the caliper . . . meaning the caliper possibly could be removed from the bracket like a lot of cars do.

Someone who has worked on this platform could perhaps chime in with more.

Looks like GM is trying to create work, designing their brake systems so the rotors have to be turned on the vehicle........

Anyone that has worked on replacing rusted up Colorado rotors, knows what I mean.....
