W140 - front calliper bolt torque?

I am replacing the front rotors and pads tomorrow and need the torque setting for the front calliper securing bolts. Does anyone know?

TIA Andy

115 NM for caliper bolts. You need to use new bolts per MB, but I just use loktite on the old bolts.

I think these are fairly static numbers across the models.

Fixed calipers - 115 Nm

Floating calipers - 90 Nm

Hope this helps.
