    Can anyone tell me or point me to where I can find the torque specs for the brake calipers on my 2011 Explorer?

    Welcome to the Forum jay.:wave:
    There actually was a thread entitled "2011 Brakes" but it didn't have any replies to the original post so I renamed it and merged yours with it. Good luck.

    Torque Spec Request: Brake Caliper Bracket

    I am replacing the front brakes on my 2011 with 73k. I had to remove the bracket that holds the brake caliper in order to remove the rotor. Does anyone have a service manual that has the torque spec for the two large bolts that hold the brake caliper bracket in place? I am also curious for the torque spec on the single torx screw that holds the rotor on the hub if it's in the same listing. I appreciate any help. Thanks

    *Looks like my thread was merged with this one so I wanted to add to a little info. I replaced my brake pads with a Motorcraft set that included an install sheet. The sheet shows 72nm for the caliper bolts. The converts to about 53 ft lbs using an online converter. Install sheet attached[​IMG] . I hope it's legible when zoomed.

    Wonder if someone with a manual would be willing to share torque specs for the front and rear brake pins and caliper mounting bolts on the 2016 Explorer Sport. I would appreciate the info. Thanks.

    Good morning all thanks for having me to the forum,
    I'm hoping I can start with a torque spec question , I researched older threads and also researched elsewhere to find the torque specs for rear caliper support bracket bolts. I'm having trouble getting a definite, consistent answer. I've read anything form 24 ft lbs to 100+ ft lbs. Thanks again for having me I look forward to the forum!! Twes4

    Anyone with torque specs for a 2016 care to chime in? I don't want to assume an earlier vintage explorer brake specs would be the same.
