I followed the link that was provided in the link and couldn't find the relevant information how to remove the hub. If you have the job number I'll appreciate it.
Wanted to thank the detailed description how to do the job + tip regarding re-mounting the hub to the wheel in order to release the allen screws. I prefer not to use power tools if I can help it(I do have a 5HP air compressor). I hope to post pictures once it is all done.
PS. I guess that they used the blue NOT the red locktight?

Have fun!
Would not torquing them to 100 possibly cause a pulsation in new brakes that has been getting worse?

The FSM calls for 115 Nm. It's 85 ft.-lb. If you go to 100 ft.-lb., woe be it to the person who needs to remove them the next time.

Posts: 3,114 much for my memory and it being 100 ft/lbs. (oops!)

Trouble I have to wonder if I tightened them down to 100 or 85...suppose I will find out if I ever have to change rotors again.
