Hi all, trying to sort out the wifes seicento (it has been off road for about 6 months) but one of the tyres has a puncture and needs changing. Anyone know the correct torque settings once I have put on the spare?? I have hunted around the net but surprisingly cannot find this info anywhere. Have seen reference to it being 86Nm but wondered if an expert could advise me!!??
Thanks guys / gals!

welcome to the forum :)

i just tighten mine to hand tight, then stand on the wheel brace to tighten it a bit more. so whatever 13stone and a 1ft bar would put on it, is what i tighten it too!

One of my manuals says 90Nm, I know that most of the Dutch garages tighthen all the wheels, regardless of the make of the car, to 100Nm (had a peek at their tools on two occasions), and so do I as 90Nm feels a bit "light" when I tighten them ;) /Woj

I always do 88, but probably because i read the 86, went to the car, thought it was 88, and did it to that......its stuck in my mind now and 2 out is probably close enough :p

I wouldn't worry too much about it, just as long as it is tight, most garages apply the same torque to all wheel nuts, they also somtimes use a hammer gun which further tightens them as well anyway.
