Title: Mk2 Front Control Arm Bolt Torque
Post by: Rntaylor on October 17, 2016, 03:44:38 PM
Hi

I've just replaced both of the rear bushes on the front lower control arms on my Mk2 Sharan - all in all a straightforward job.  Now, I've had a good search, but can't find anywhere the torque settings for  the 2 large bolts that secure the front lower control arm to the sub-chassis.  Can anybody give me a pointer?

Thanks

The Haynes manual doesn't fully answer the question, it clearly states that the front bolt is 90nm plus 90o angle tighten, however it says nothing about the rear bolt....  ??? If the rear bolt is of the same size and pitch of thread as the front bolt I would go with the same torque as the front bolt.

Thanks insanitybeard

The 2 bolts look identical so I'll go for the 90 + 90 on both.
