Theres a 1 1/4" nut on the end of the front axle. Conventional vehicle would have a cap over nut and a cotter pin to lock it. You would snug nut but not too tight against bearing. Then lock it with cap/cotter pin.

This FWD has interference fit type nut, no cotter pin set up. Is it to be tightened to the maximumum? Thats what I did and it seems ok but now Im wondering if too tight could be wrong.


Thanks for reply.


If it aint broke, dont break it.

the axle nut should have provisions for a cotterkey, as this secures the axle to the wheel hub.[at least the ones to 06, so i would guess the 09 is similar]. the torque is 244nm.[180 ft.lbs] with the brakes applied for this nut, as per the fsm.[in other words, real tight !] hope this helps.

Thanks. It doesnt have cotter pin set-up. Big nut has divots punched into it, that I think is intended to lock itself. Brakes are way different from 05 that I had as well. I was wondering if its ok to re-use this nut, and how tight...

"Real tight" was really what I needed to know.

Thanks.

NOTE: Always install a new hub nut. The original hub nut is one-time use only and should be discarded when removed.
11. Install hub nut (1) on end of halfshaft stub shaft (2). With aid of a helper applying brakes to keep front hub from turning, tighten hub nut to 160 Nm (118 ft. lbs.).

I thought so. It was easier going back on than coming off although there was some rust in the mix also. How about some medium loctite til I get a new nut?
