156 Wheel Bearings
Has anyone changed a 156 1.8 TS front wheel bearing. Eventually shifted the bearing from the hub on a 20T press. All is back and running, but I couldnt find anyone to give me a torque setting for the bearing nut. I set it to 110lb ft. Was this enough as Ive read the rears need 220-240 lb / ft.
Seeing as I have a rear bearing to do as well next weekend, is there is correct procedure fit the bearing onto the stub shaft and what torque does it require as 200 lb plus seems an awful lot to me.
Please advise if anyone has done this job. Thanks Andy
