Hello all.
Can anyone tell me what the torque setting should be on the wheel nuts on my car, I looked in the workshop manual that tells me how to change a wheel, the many ways to repair a puncture and correct tyre pressures but nothing relating to torque settings.
I guess that I should just use the all time push till the elbow cracks method then?
