I've been training as a mechanic but not fully competent yet but I know that having the correct torque is vital. Anyway to my question for you where can I find the torque settings for my 51 plate 1.6 ford focus( mainly the one for the rear drums when you undo the four bolts in the back and the drum and the shaft come out) thanks in advance

Have something to contribute?

I agree that the correct torque is vital but only for certain things, i very much doubt the torque of the 4 bolts is that critical, the main hub nut maybe because of the bearing. ive never torqued the 4 bolts that hold the stub axle in, only the hub nut @235Nm and so far never had any problems. if the bolts are tight (not with hulk strength) and not going to fall out then that will do for me and probably most people.
