    Torque wrenches and setting for hub nut?

    I'm going to attempt some DIY and replace a dead ball joint however it looks like I'll need a torque wrench for when I piece it all back together.

    Does anyone recommend any torque wrenches? Not looking to spend loads as it won't be used often.

    Also apart from the hub nut will I need to torque up any other bolts to a certain level when replacing the ball joint?

    Halfords pro range are good for general un often use imo.

    Worth asking about for a local trade card (friend with one)

    No one I know has one around here, I imagine it's a hell of a lot cheaper as well! The one I'm looking at is 80...

    Torquing the hub nut to replace a Ball joint?!?!?!

    Only torque setting I use is QFT.

    If it's on the engine it's a different story though.

    I don't want to ruin the wheel bearing if it's too tight.

    That only goes to 80nm, I imagine hub nuts are 200nm+.

    Second one is the one I need as it goes up to 300nm, typical it's the most expensive!

    Taken from Renault Diolagys...

    Tightening Torques (in daNm.m)

    Driveshaft Nut - 28
    Wheel Bolts - 9
    Shock absorber base nut- 18
    Brake Caliper mounting bolt - 10
    Track Rod end nut - 3.7
    Cotter Bolt nut on stub axle carrier - 5.5

    Probably no help

    Why do you feel them need to undo the hub nut to replace a ball joint????

    as above, you don't touch the steering or the hub nut when doing a ball joint

    and regarding the e-mail earlier, bal joints don't squeak, that'll be a lower arm

    Oh ok, I think I read on another thread it needs to come off. At least that'll make the job a little easier, also a few people mentioned using a ball joint fork is it actually needed?

    EDIT: Just seen your post above I think I'll book it in for the work and save my poor hands the effort.

    Ball joint removing fork is essential IMO takes them out the hub no problems.
