Tightening torque
Tightening torque for wheel bolts:
118 ftlb. (160 Nm).

Security wheel bolts
The adapter (wrench socket) for the security wheel bolts is in the tool kit.

  • To loosen or tighten the wheel bolt with anti-theft protection, the adapter must be used between the wheel bolt and the wheel bolt wrench.
  • When positioning the wrench socket, ensure that it engages fully in the teeth of the wheel bolt.

On vehicles with 0.67 in. (17 mm) spacers on the rear axle, the wheels are secured with steel nuts. There is no anti-theft protection for the wheel nuts.

  • If the wheels have to be removed at the workshop, please do not forget to hand over the socket for the security wheel bolts along with the car key.

Wheel bolts with fitted 0.2 in. (5 mm) spacers

Tightening torque for wheel bolts:
118 ftlb. (160 Nm).

Incorrect wheel bolts
If 0.2 in. (5 mm) spacers are fitted, wheels are held securely only if long wheel bolts (2.13 in. (54 mm)) are used. Wheels may become loose while driving if they are fitted using short wheel bolts, which could result in loss of vehicle control leading to an accident.

  • After fitting 0.2 in. (5 mm) spacers, use only long wheel bolts (2.13 in. (54 mm)) on all four wheels.
