NOTE: Always install a new hub nut. The original hub nut is one-time use only and should be discarded when removed.
11. Install hub nut on end of halfshaft stub shaft. With aid of a helper applying brakes to keep front hub from turning, tighten hub nut to 160 N·m (118 ft. lbs.).
12. Install tire and wheel assembly. Install and tighten wheel mounting nuts to 135 N·m (100 ft. lbs.).
13. Lower vehicle.
14. Pump brake pedal several times to ensure vehicle has a firm brake pedal before moving vehicle.

2000 Honda civic front wheel hub torque specs

My RX7 is the same as your Civic, 80 ft lbs.
Pep boys torqued them to 350. I had to go back to get them loosened. Too tight will warp the disk rotors.
Hope this helps.

What is the 2006 honda civic front wheel bearing torque spec

what the hell are you talking about? you have sealed wheel bearings. the preload is already set at the bearing manufacturer. the bearing is pressed into the spindle unit and the front axles are secured to the hub. hub is pressed into the inner race of wheel bearing.

Spindle nut. Tighten the nut to 185 ft. lbs. (251 Nm). Inch pounds is not an option, this critical torque spec is FT lbs.

What are the torque specs on a 2000 honda civic front wheel hub

torqued my 96 si front axle nut to 134 ft lbs like the manual calls and i nearly lost a wheel.
i believe they gotta be much much tighter then that. When i did the headgasket the manual called for 49 ft lbs or 54 ft lbs one or the other and thats what it was torqued to and 50 kms after it got back on the road it completely blew. torqued it to 80 ft lbs after redoing the whole job havent had an issue even vtecing everwhere i go.
needless to say torque specs... dont worry about them, torque axle nuts with an impact gun and all your strength on a breaker bar and you wont have an issue.

Need the 2000 Buick LeSabre rear wheel Hub nut torque spec.

Those are not nuts, they are bolts. The torque spec for those bolts is 52ft.lbs

Broken wheel bolt

These bolts are usually pressed into the hub. If you remove the hub you can usually knock out the broken bolt and buy a new one at an auto parts store and insert it into the hub, When you put the hub back on the wheel and tighten the lug nuts that will pull the new bolt up tight into the hub.

This is usually caused by someone using an powered wrench tightening the wheel nuts too tight. I had this happen to me once and ever since I have insisted that anyone using an air wrench do not use one to tighten the lug nuts. They must use a torque wrench and tighten to manufactures spec.

Good luck and I hope this helps
