    Front Wheel Bearing Torque Spec?

    Anyone know what the torue spec is for the 32mm nut which holds front wheel bearing on? This is for a 2001 Grand Caravan.

    Thanks,
    John

    From the Service Manual.



    (5) Install the hub nut on the end of the stub axle.

    With aid of a helper applying the brakes to

    keep the front hub from turning, tighten the hub nut

    to Install the mounting bolts and tighten to 244 Nm

    (180 ft. lbs.) torque.

    I was going to say 180 ft lbs from memory (as I just did one) but DSM beat me to it!

    Define easy.

    I followed the directions that I got from the internet and it was going well up to the point that the bearing hub assembly was stuck in the steering knuckle. I had to .... uh... coax the old one out.

    Putting it back together was frighteningly easy.

    I believe 8 pounds was the one I had on hand.

    Same one that 'coaxed' the rotors off my saturn.
