    Unhappy Possible incorrect torque specification 2003 Honda Accord

    I think the torque specification of 80 foot-pounds listed on page 9-1 of the Honda Accord 2003-2005 manual for the caliper mounting bracket bolts may be incorrect. I just attempted to tighen these bolts on on of my Accord's rear calipers and I believe the threads started to strip. In hindsite, the size of the bolt appears to be too small to support such a large torque. Have there been similar complaints? Also, could you please verify that the 80 Ft-lbs listed is correct? I used two different torque wrenches with the same result.

    Thanks!
