Re: Laguna III hubnut torque?

The nut I'm sure is 32mm, but be prepared for a struggle. I can't remember the exact figure for the torque, but it's huge. I broke a number of solid socket bars trying to remove one of my front hub nuts on my old Lag and eventually gave in and took it to a local tyre fitter, who used an impact driver they used for loosening lorry wheel nuts to start it for me. I'll check at home tonight and let you know, but as I remember its about 285 lbs/ft!
