SOURCE: how do you change the rear brake pads on a 2002

You need to remove the 2 bolts that attach the caliper to the mounting bracket (big metal) with an 18mm socket, use a 1/2" drive ratchet to give you some torque. If you are removing the other bolts that just "turn" you are on the wrong bolts, these are the bolts that allow the caliper to slide in and out freely. you should be able to then use a ligth hammer to tap the entire assemble off of the rotor. then replace you pads and rotors if needed. also your parking brake is located inside the drum of the rear rotor. Making adjustments to these can be quite a process but can be done in the driveway. good luck.

SOURCE: torque wrench settings for ford focus thermostat

There is a set spec, but for the DIY mechanic,,
Using a !/4 " drive, with the correct long socket, apply a FIRM effort on the wrench, but obviously not too much, as to sheer the studs. Always use a NEW gasket on all mating surfaces.
Regards,DT

1995 ford windstar thermostat housing bolt torque spec


Most people don't bother using a torque wrench to tighten a thermostat housing.

It is more important to be careful and tighten each bolt a little at a time. You do not want to warp, crack, miss align the part you are bolting.

It does not take a lot of torque to seal a thermostat housing. I would guess somewhere between 15 and 20 ft lbs.

It is often hard to find such torque specs for specific vehicles.

For bolts that you cannot find a specified torque spec, you can refer to a standard bolt torque chart. The charts are based on the diameter of the bolt threads not the wrench size used to fit the bolt head. The charts also depend on the hardness of the bolt material. Also keep in mind the material you are bolting into.

Here is one such chart...
http://www.dansmc.com/torque_chart.htm

Keep in mind that thermostat housing bolts are just sealing a gasket. They are not holding the entire car together.

After turning wrenches for many years, most mechanics just know by feel.

There are cases where a torque wrench is mandatory. Like head bolts, wheel bearing/hub nuts, rod caps, main bearing, etc.

Replacing a thermastat on a 2004 chevy impala


ok. It's fairly straight forward --
Make sure engine is cool, locate the hose leading from radiator to the top of the engine, you should find a housing with two bolts one on each side. remove the hose, bolts and housing, clean all smooth surfaces with scraper then sand paper to remove all old gasket material, replace thermostat, seal with gasket sealer and torque bolts back on to specification (typically a good solid snug would do)
Best regards
