Hub Nut Torque setting

8 posts in this topic

Hi all, My first posting on this forum. My hubby has just looked at the rear brake shoes on my lkle green Fiesta 51 reg, since I complained about a squeeking nose - they are ok luckily.

He now needs to put the central hub nut back on and the Haynes manual says it needs 199 lbft (270 NM) of torque. He says this is a lot? :o is this right? He also says he is gona have to buy a new torque wrench since his only goes up to 150 NM

I searched the web and have seen a quoted figure of 235nm in a couple of places. He says the nut consists of a washer and 4 thin nuts all caged together (30mm socket fits it)

Can any one confirm the value?

Cheers Linda

the nut is made up of layers, and should only be used a maximum of 2 or 3 times. 270Nm sounds like far too much, 235 sounds about right, thats also the torque setting for the rear drums on my focus if i remember correctly.
