PostPosted: Fri Apr 03, 2009 1:42 pm    Post subject: Torque Spec's! Reply with quote

I only have the haynes vw bug manual and i dont think it has all the torque spec's i need:

-rear brake backing plate bolts (also hold bearing cap etc)

-tie rod nylon locking nuts (how do you hold the shaft still while putting nut on???)

-rear bearing retainer onto spring plate bolts

-top/bottom nuts and bolts for front/rear dampers

-huge transmission mount bolts and smaller tranny mount nuts (onto the pan studs)


If there is anywhere i can find all of these and more, that would be great.
Thanks!

Hi,

Tie rod ends do rotate as you tighten the nut, the ball just rotates in the cup.

Most have either a square or hex end at the tip of the threads that once it protrudes past the nut you grasp with a wrench.

A allen key depression on the top to fit in an allen key to hold while you turn the nut

or A Torx depression that operates exactly like the allen.

These are the three most common and you probably have one. You may have a star tipped end, not unlike a torx but external like the hex would be. A Double Square I think they call them but I may be wrong on the name.

Dave

If you have 6mm oil pump studs, do not attempt to tighten them to 14 ft lbs.
They are tightened 5 ft lbs.
