Question rear differential leakage

While playing around with the exhaust on my 2001 Impreza 2.5 RS, I noticed some oil had seeped out of the rear differential at the rear cover seam. It was just a film of oil from the bottom to about halfway up the seam, with a slightly thicker collection on the underside of the differential. I'm wondering what the torque requirement of the bolts that hold the rear cover on is. I checked them, and at 25 foot-pounds, each of the four lower bolts suddenly turned, with the torque effort dropping to 10-15 foot-pounds. I torqued each bolt to 30, because I figured that ought to be "about right." Anybody here know the exact number? Or had the same problem?

This reminds me of the other question I have: where can I get a detailed service manual for the Impreza? I bought a genuine Honda manual for $50 for my 1994 Prelude, which has EVERYTHING in it; the shop I use for really big jobs has the same manual. This is the kind of book I'm looking for.
