    Correct torque for rear driveshaft 12 point nut

    Is this the correct procedure for a rear driveshaft nut on an S3, seems a low torque?

    Wheels must not be in contact with ground when tightening drive shaft as otherwise wheel bearing could be damaged.

    • Have second mechanic press brake.
    • Tighten twelve-point nut to 250 Nm.
    • Slacken off twelve-point nut by 360°(one turn).
    • Tighten twelve-point nut to 50 Nm.
    • Set vehicle down on its wheels.
    • Give twelve-point nut further 60° turn.

    Yup, that's the correct tightening procedure mate.

    You can substitute the second mechanic, starting the engine - press your foot on the brake hard but leave some of the pedal visible - put a breaker bar/trimmed broom handle etc on the visible part of the brake pedal and wedge it against the base of the seat.
