I don't normally replace the bolts, unless either the head or the thread is damaged. However you must put thread lock on the bolts!! Just imagine if the bolts worked loose!!

sorry chaps that should have been the bolts for the caliper carrier, the haynes manual says change them.

If they are angle tightened then they should be replaced.
If they are torque tightened and pre-coated with thread lock then the manual will say replace because the coating is not re-usable however you can clean off the old coating then use liquid thread locking compound
