Learn from my mistake. After fighting the bolt to remove the caliper, I had the dumb idea to lubricate the bolt on reinstall. Of course the torque would be excessive with lubricant, and I stretched the bolt. Ordinary bolts do not fit the thread size and I had to buy it from the dealer + 3 days. Lesson: use loctite, not lubricant.
