Does anyone know the size of the front break caliber glide bolt? Also what kind of tools are necessary to remove? Before I start changing my breaks I want to make sure I have the right tools and sizes.

Does anybody know what the torque settings should be for tightening up the wheel nuts so I don't damage the alloys on 19" wheels

I don't follow the specific # of ft.lbs when tightening the wheel nuts. You don't want to over tighten them because removing the nuts incase of a flat tire along the side of the road, using the factory supplied tire wrench, can be impossible if they are too tight. Thats often the case when torqued to spec. Tightening in steps all around (180 across) until you put your back into it on the last tightening step has always worked for me and allowed me to remove the wheel in an emergency with the provided tools.

Per the owner's manual:

10. With all wheels on the ground and the jack
removed, fully tighten the wheel nuts. The
wheel nuts must be tightened in sequence
(see illustration) to the correct torque of
133 Nm (98 lb.ft).
