Dave: I hear what you're saying. In my case, I made a mistake when looking at the torque settings in the Hayne's manual. I was looking at something that indicated 33Nm. My small torque wrench only goes to 29Nm to begin with.

I found the correct torque setting in my MBZ CD manual. It says that these bolts should be tightened to only 10Nm. That is MUCH more reasonable sounding. 10Nm is about 1/2 an ugh

10Nm is also about right in the middle of this torque wrench so the accuracy should be pretty good.

As for the lugs, at the very least, I anyone who is putting them back on use torque sticks.
