caliper bolt torque settings

OK,

I have read a few posts and am getting conflicting information.

I am working on replacing the rear brakes and have everything under control with notes but torque specs.

What is the (inch or ft pounds) torque settings for the caliper guide bolts?
what is the torque settings for the caliper carrier bolts (the 16 mm)?

Thanks a bunch!!

Per the Bentley manual...

Caliper Guide Pins: 22 ft-lb (30 Nm)
Rotor retaining screw: 12 ft-lb (16 Nm)
Rear carrier retaining bolts: 48 ft-lb (65 Nm)
Front carrier retaining bolts: 81 ft-lb (110 Nm)

PS, I added to the wiki.
