Hi Ian, I totally forgot about this

Ok, so what i have in front of me doesnt state the order but its usually from the inside working out

stage 1 - 5Nm

stage 2 - 15Nm

stage 3 - 45Nm

stage 4 - angle tighten a further 90 degrees

stage 5 - angle tighten a further 90 degrees

You will also need new bolts (the old ones will be stretched)
