Driveaxle hub nut

What size is the socket needed?

My Haynes manual says 120 lb torque in one section and 135 lb in another. Which is correct for a 1999 Intrepid?

Thanks

The 2002 FSM says "Hub And Bearing Axle Hub Nut 105 ft.lbs."

Wow what a crap shoot. '02 FSM says 105. haynes is confused between 120 and 135. '94 FSM says 80. I'd go with the 105. But I am just curious.....what years does the Haynes manual cover ????

Why would you bring up a spec from a 1994 FSM when the car is a 1999 and completely different? I hope you're not using that old manual to maintain your 2G trep......

It was just an example of different numbers thrown around for that spec. haynes manuals try to cover way too many years and models in one skinny ass book and are not worth the match to set them on fire. Did you notice my question at the end of my last post ??

Maybe buy an FSM for the year you have or even better,,state what year and model you have and ask for specs for that particular model? Never mind. Reminds me of that IntrepidCub guy...many questions gets an answer and doesn't respond it helped him.

on my 2001 2.7, the socket needed was a 34mm, yours should be the same. I know this because I was going to try to get my axle nut off to replace a bearing so I went out and bought the socket.. but the axle nut was rusted on so tight though, I gave up and had the bearing done at a shop. I picked it up at Pep Boys I think.

Haynes

My Intrepid is a 99

Haynes covers 98 thru 01

34 mm sounds right

torque? still confused?

Man, so am I.

But given the options I would go with the 2002 FSM - 105#. I don't think the front end changed over the years so I can't imagine why the torque spec would change, either. But I guess you never know ...

From my 1999 FSM, the retaining nut is torqued to 120 ft. lbs. +/- 10 ft. lbs. It also says that a new nut must be used each time..saying it is a "prevailing" torque nut and can not be re-used. Whatever prevailing means? And just in case you ever do a rear hub the torque on that is 124 ft. lbs.

FLASH UPDATE!! The above torque specs are listed in the assembly procedures in the text. There is a caution paragraph listed in bold font that says not to exceed 120 ft. lbs. I then looked at the Front Suspension Fastener Torque Spec table on the last page of the chapter and it says 135 ft. lbs. for the front stub axle nut!! This is a genuine DC 1999 FSM !!
I then look at my D/C 2000 FSM and it has the same numbers!! I then go to the D/C 2001 FSM. The Torque Specification table at the front of the chapter has 105 ft. lbs. and the text in the assembly also says 105 ft. lbs. Don't know what to say on the ones for your year but the later ones are 105. They all say to use a new nut each time though.

A definitive answer at last! Always go by the proper FSM if it's available.

Does make me wonder what happened between 1999 and 2002 ...

Where do you live? When are you going to do the job? I'd send you the socket... I don't have any use for it really.

wow I'm actually glad I tripped over this in preparation for my 3.5HO swap. Most Ford's are well into the 200-300 range for this (aka...impact gun...hold it on until it stops turning...30 seconds of bam bam bam arms hurt).

That could have been a boo boo.

200-300???

You might want to d/l the 2002 FSM before that project. Not everything will be exactly the same (as we've just seen) but it's better than nothing ...

yep. I take my impact gun with an impact socket and count to fifty. I once tried to check it with a torque wrech


In order to break the Probe axle nuts I do at home (no air compressor THAT big) for some side customers, I have to have someone start the car and slam on the breaks and use a 48" long 1/2" drive ratchet with a six foot extension and put my bodyweight on it (~160) and even then they barely break loose.

Interesting thing is though, once you break that initial torque, you can take them off with like a 6" 1/2dr. ratchet from there. weird. ford sucks.
