bolt torque chart for cars?

Where do I find a bolt torque chart for cars? For example, when replacing brakes, the caliper bracket bolts have to be torqued to a specific ft x lb number. How do I find out what torque to apply to different bolts? Would appreciate any suggestion. Thanks h.

Either pick up a make/model specific repair manual from a library or bookstore or you can look it up on a site that has the info on line. AutoZone's site has repair manuals for most cars and it will include things like torque values where needed.

Each vehicle manufacturer publishes a Factory Service Manual (AKA: Service Information or Shop manual). These are also on DVD in pdf format. The books will be typically 4 volumes and 2000 pages total.

All for one model year vehicle! Instructions for how to service ANYTHING on the specific year/model vehicle is in there.

You can get the same information from

For older vehicles, you can purchase the set of books used on ebay, amazon, and elsewhere. Like this...
