Re: 53 Laguna II Rear Hub Nut Torque?


snapped the ends off, and beat the hell out of them with a centre punch 2.5mm, job done, nice fresh clean holes cleared out.
trying to work out how to take the ABS ring off was fun, its made of stainless steel with a magnetic ring (think like a fridge magnet) on it. just beat the outer edge under the ring and it should eventually pop off, without damaging the ring.
it took me a while to work out that it actually came off as it looked like it was all one piece with the disc as both were equally corroded.
oh and chuck lots of WD40 around to free it up.
dunno if i got the wheel nut tightened up correctly, i jumped up n down on the 3foot bar with the 36mm socket on it, seems pretty tight.
