I’m looking to replace these screws with new ones.

Does anyone know what size they are?

And do they need to be torqued to a certain level?

They look like they hold both halves of the caliper together, so will likely have a specified torque level. Why not employ a clamp, remove one at a time, treat and paint the heads....? (Only after ascertaining correct replacement torque, of course.....lol.)

They're M4 x 8 dome-head.
No, they don't need torquing. Just hand tight. But do(!) smear some copper grease on the thread before fitting as the screws (set pins) are stainless and the calliper is aluminium.

These are the ones on mine . . but as you can see, the large ones are the old font. Also, I had to put them on the carrier as they were too big for the spring logo plate.

They're the same callipers as the XF-S. Although . . . . I seem to remember there being no logo plate on my XF rear callipers. Does yours have them?

How come you didn’t put the front ones on the spring plate John?
Same offer, James: PM me your address and I'll put two of each in the post.
