Re: 156 sump plug torque setting

Hello from the UK.
It isn't very tight at all.17Nm-21Nm(12.54-15.49 ft/lbs) for the TS engine.The JTS looks to have the same sump on ePER.The sump plug is frequently over-tightened at garages,resulting in thread damage in the sump and/or difficulty removing the plug.

Make sure you replace the sump plug washer every time as well. Originally these were copper but I think they are now using the ones with the rubber seals.
