w210 E55 AMG rear caliper questions

I have searching and was hoping someone can a definite answer on this.
What is the torque setting for the rear caliper bolts on a 2001 E55 AMG?
I have only been able to find the setting for a w211 and it was much higher than I expected for caliper bolts.
Also, do the bolts need to be changed or can I reuse the ones in there already?

I am hoping to be able to change the rear pads and rotors this weekend.

Generally, AMG packages include upgraded brakes so OEM values will probably be wrong. Not sure where to find the info although if you have a good relationship with a local dealer they might help.

As for mounting bolts, MB has used micro-encapsulated bolts for some time and they should be replaced with new ones whenever removed. Tip - Buy the bolts at a dealer and confirm the torque with them.
Good luck.

10mm bolts should be torqued to 55Nm. 12mm bolts, 115Nm.

As RichardM98 correctly points out, MB requires all micro-encapsulated bolts be replaced. If you want to go "by-the-book" replace them. If a trip to the dealer is a PIA, you can apply a drop or two of removeable thread locker before re-using them. It'll work fine.

Thanks to both of you. I called the dealership today and they did not have the bolts in stock. I was planning on calling them tomorrow and asking them to order them for me but I might just go the threadlocker way.
