    Hi all, my first post after finding this forum.

    Could someone please tell me the torque setting for the front hub nut. I had to remove it to replace the hub carrier after a mishap with the caliper pin thread[​IMG]

    Thanks
    Rob.

    oops, should have said drive shaft nut in the hub i think?

    The Cavalier is the same but an initial 130Nm ... I would assume its a pretty common setting

    I find the 6 foot scaffold pole jumped on from the roof of your house is more neccesary to undo them.

    Wow! that was some quick replies. Thanks guys, i'll get it done tomorrow now. Yes, its a G model 2001 mk4.
    Thanks again
    Rob.

    P.S. if i'd had a scaffold pole to undo it, i may not have wrecked my shoulder for a couple of days!!!

    Better that way than what I found on my new Cavalier when I changed the CV joint. Got all prepared to give the nut a biggun by putting two chunky bolts in the stud holes ... bar accross them and braced against the floor. socket on the nut with a 4' breaker bar on. Went to give it a heave ho and the bloody thing just span making me nose dive into the ground giving me a nose bleed. The thing was only hand tight!!!!!

    Hate to think what would of happened it it came loose when driving down the M'way.
