Lug Nut Torque Spec?

Hello All,

What is the proper torque for the lug nuts on a 1983 300D? Is it around 80 ft lbs?

I guess if know you might want to include the other bodies (w116, 123, 124, 126, etc) as well just for reference for others in need.


Thanks

You'd be unpleasantly surprised on how overtightened they will be.........if you used anything longer than 12"..........with commesurate deformation of the hub and the rotor.

When having tire work done, ALWAYS tell them to torque to 80. Some places just air ratch them on, some torque to a standard 100.

My Volvo is only torqued to 40 ft-lbs. It's what it calls for in the manual and I had to threaten the place with a lawsuit if they deformed / cracked the hubs if they torqued it to what they wanted. Needless to say they did comply with the owners manual.
