Was doing front pads and rotors on my 2012 Fusion (176,000 mi,) this morning and it required way too much force to get the piston to go back in on the driver's side. So that caliper is toast. I have a rebuilt one setting in front of me, but I am lacking one piece of info, the caliper flex hose banjo bolt torque.

No problem finding the rear caliper banjo bolt torque, it's 18ft-lbs.
But I have been googling for 2-hours and have come up with nothing. I am guessing it is in the 20-25lbs range, but does anyone have access to a service manual that can confirm that? It the same caliper for 2006-2012 model years so data from any of those years will do.

I did 25 ft-lbs and it is holding so far. Could feel the crush washers sealing. That was with a click-type torque wrench so that could be +/- 10% at the end of the day.
