    I have searched - to no avail..... lol.

    Anyone know the required tightening torque for an S3 front hub nut?

    Will be fitting driveshafts tomorrow to Weds and the correct torque is reasonably important....

    I know it was just beyond my torque wrench setting or it was x nm + 1/4 of a turn. Think it was stated in the boot kit box I got from Audi. 280 rings a bell but i`ll try and find it when I get home. Its also a stretch bolt 17 or 19 mm allen key / hex drive.

    My torque wrench broke when I did mine and I dented my front wing with my chin :(

    210nm( or it could be lbs but what ever the max torque or the wrench is!) then 180degree turn.
