I will not be taking my CX-30 in for the front caliper recall. Would like to tighten them up myself if needed. Does anyone know the torque specification's on the caliper mounting bolts? Also the size of the bolts would be appreciated.

Thank you in advance!

Why not? Have you had an official notice from Mazda to take the car for the check? I would think that if you have, but don’t take the car in and something happens brake related then you would be held liable. The recalls get recorded on the cars history once they have been done.

Making sure caliper bolts are at speck is not a concern to me. If it was a real issue I would take it in. I will have it checked at a dealer in a year or so when covid is done with. Not going to a dealer and risking exposure for them to check the tightness of a bolt.

If it was the recall on the gas tank / Evap I would take it in... Luckily I do not have that recall on my Nov/2019 AWD select.

Boom ! Just for you 🙂 since I used to work at my dealership and left in super good terms I can pretty much ask anything and so the torque should be set to around 22 ft pounds and the lowest is 19 so in that range but tech friend told me be on the safe side and set it to 22. Good luck 🙂 stay safe over there in the USA 😊

You are most welcome 😊 only other thing as far as recalls go that our might want to keep in mind is the fuel tank recall as it affects the AWD models only . If you smell gas or have a

20-22 in lbs seems excessively low for a caliper mounting bolt.

I thought the potential loose bolts were the caliper bracket bolts.
