    Hi everyone. Does anyone happen to know the official torque spec for the calliper bolts and perhaps the hex screw that holds the brake rotor on the hub? I assume it's the same for all Model S', but in case it isn't, I have a 2013 P85+.

    I want to remove the rotors to spray paint them with high temperature calliper paint, after removing all the rust on the hub area. I was going to also bake them in a makeshift oven.

    120Nm for caliper to knuckle bolts.

    17Nm for rotor to hub screw

    42Nm brake hose to caliper bolt + sealing washer (discard and replace)

    8Nm brake dust shield to knuckle

    Appears to be the same for all model s (front and rear)
