That's true.

Do you have torque specs for two screws (Allen Wrench 6mm) in the caliper?
The bolts that go inside the sliders? (I haven't looked under the dust covers at the head style). If so, it looks like 34 Nm (25 lb-ft).

Front and rear specs are the same. Both sheets attached for completeness.

I recently replaced the pads and rotors both front and rear. I saved a ton of time by removing the caliper bracket from the hub and leaving the caliper attached. Since I was replacing the rotors anyway, I could use a large screwdriver to push between the rotor and the old pad, allowing enough slack to slide the whole assembly apart. Compress the caliper all the way and insert the new pads, and it will slide back onto the new rotor.

Bolt, brake disk to wheel hub: 18 Nm (13.3 lb-ft)
Bolt, caliper to suspension: 172 Nm (127 lb-ft)

See attached.
I see this note: "Notes on self-locking nuts and bolts", AH00.00-N-0001-01A

Are there self locking nuts and bolts when doing the front pads and rotor?
