Doing brakes on my 2006 Mustang GT

I'm new to the allfordmustang forum and am doing a complete brake job on my 2006 GT tomorrow. I also changing the rotars on all four wheels. I bought a capiler wrench today and was told the job is not that difficult. One question I have is do the bolts on the rotars have to be tourqed when putting the new ones on? Any advise is appriceated.

Tony

I shoot the caliper bracket on with a gun, hand tighten the actual caliper with a ratchet, and always torque the lug nuts on the wheel.

make sure you have a caliper piston tool. The ones in the back are the stupid "twist in" ones. I tried to use needle nose pliers and I eventually gave up and put the old pads back on because they weren't that worn... Front pads and calipers are a snap though!

nevermind, just noticed you bought the "caliper wrench" could be the same thing I'm thinking of...

Welcome to AFM, I see your thread is 20 hours old but I'll ask anyway. Do you know how to collapse the front caliber pistons without opening the bleeders? After removing the caliber put your old pad against the piston and use a C- clamp to collapse the piston. Slowly tighten the C-clamp and the brake fluid will return to master cyl.
