Just to clarify ... when the FSM gives different torque specs for different sized bolts (in this case M10 and M12) is that referring to the head or the threaded part? Because it occurred to me the bolts that came out were M10 XZN, while the bolts in there now are M12 torx ... I was following the M12 torque setting in the FSM, but was thinking, shouldn't it be the same as for the old bolts? Now I'm worried I'm overtorquing them. Hope that question makes sense.
