A general rule of thumb in my garage is 100ft/lbs for smaller lugs like cars and 120ft/lbs for larger ones like pickups.

What is the torque for a front axiel nut

The front wheel bearings consist of a cartridge design and are permanently lubricated and sealed requiring no further maintenance. The bearings are preset and cannot be adjusted. If any part of a wheel bearing assembly is defective, the unit must be replaced. It is critical that the wheel hub retainer is properly tightened to 210 ft. lbs. (290 Nm) and that a new wheel hub retainer is always used. I think this is what you wanted not lug nut bot lug nuts are 75-90 lbs, please if this is what you wanted click on comments and let me know. thanks Woody. .

thanks .

Lug Nuts keep falling off?

This is a somewhat common problem, believe it or not. Due to lack of preventive maintenance, the wheels will sometimes work themselves loose. If caught early, the loose nuts may merely need tightening to proper torque specs to solve the problem. After a certain point, damage is done to the wheels and lugs and nuts, due to the "flapping" of the loose wheel. Past this point, parts must be checked and replaced.

Whatever you do, have the wheels and lugs checked by a competent mechanic ASAP! This is a serious safety hazard that could turn deadly on the road. Is a new wheel worth more than your life? No it isn't, you can afford it!

How do i remove the front wheel bearing?

Replacing a front wheel bearing on a front-wheel drive car is not usually very easy to do. Typically, you remove the tire and then remove the nut on the end of the drive axle. (The nut is usually pretty big - maybe 27mm as a guess. It's also very tight. The spec for this car is 120lbf, or roughly 2x as tight as a lug nut. If you don't have the right socket and breaker bar/ratchet/impact driver, go buy one.) Next, you remove the brake caliper and disk. You can then use a hammer/punch to free the end of the axle from the wheel bearing (you probably do not need to completely remove it, just budge it loose from the splines). Finally, the wheel bearing is usually just held in with ~4 bolts. If you've got the axle out of the bearing, it should come off fairly easily.

This job does usually require a few specialized tools, but is not too difficult. The hardest part is usually getting the nut off the axle and freeing the axle from the splines in the wheel hub. Just be sure to properly support the car with jack stands, because you'll be really tweaking on some of those nuts, and you don't want the car to be unstable.

I need instructions on how to replace rear wheel bearings on my 1994 Honda Civic

Bearings are pressed into the hubs...much easier, faster and economical (if you don't have a press) to replace the complete bearing/hub assembly, no pressing is needed, since bearings are already pressed into the new hubs. Cost..aprox, 60 buxs each.
Here are the steps for the rear replacement...
Loosen the lug nuts on a rear wheel. 2) Chock the wheels and jack the rear of the car on the side with the lug nuts that you just loosened. 3) Remove the wheel by removing the lug nuts. 4) Pry open the dust cap covering the center of the axle/spindle. A small screwdriver tapped into the space between the hub and dust cap will work well for this. 5) With the dust cap now removed, use a thin center punch to straighten the little dent in the rim of the spindle nut so that you will be able to turn it freely in the next step. 6) Use a 32mm socket and a large breaker-bar to loosen the spindle nut. Unscrew the nut all the way and place it in a clean, safe area. 7) You should now be able to slide the hub/bearing assembly from the shaft. 8) Installation is the reverse of removal. Use plenty of high-temperature wheel bearing grease on all surfaces before you mount the replacement hub assembly.

IMPORTANT: Torque the spindle nut to 134 ft/lbs....(per manual specs)

When reinstalling the dust caps, tap them gently into place to avoid denting them...Install wheels, jack her down and pat yourself on the back...job complete.
Good luck..hope this will fixya up...please take time to leave me a fixya rateing...
