I posted same question recently after the fact.

The only response I got was from Benzmac stating to use Loctite when putting back on. Not sure, but I don't believe that these bolts are generally replaced in the real world. (At least not by the techs that I asked after my post).

Post any feedback you get elsewhere as this should have been an issue that was addressed by everyone that has ever replaced pads themselves on a sliding caliper setup (esp. if they read a manual at the time (Both of mine recommend bolt replacement)).

Although understanding safety/liability concerns (prudence will dictate advice) I would still invite others to respond on this issue.

Also, additional clarification on strength/color of loctite formula to use would be appreciated (red or blue? Both listed on prior posts on subject (search= bolt caliper)).

Further, are these bolts on Fastlane or Partsshop? If not, does anyone know part #'s for W124 chassis?
