hi all,
Straight in here, I am trying to find the rear wheel hub nut torque settings for when I do a disk change.
I can find nothing out there in the interweb, if I do find anything, they are all different, ranging from 30-270nM.

Any ideas please, this is doing my head in as I need to start doing the disk now.
Regards

Hi nick

The rear hub nut torque is 31.2 daN•m

daN•m is a decanewton meter.

1 daN•m = 10 N•m

so you get a torque of 312 N•m


It is unusual for such a new car and low mileage to need new discs.

Thanks for the reply Arfur, sorry it has been so long to reply to you.

yes, the disk was shot, very deep scratches and a lot of wear, but it has been done.

Probably a bad batch

Regards..
