    Question Rocker Cover torque settings??

    As always I've started a job when I've left my Haynes 100 miles away.

    Can somebody tell me the torque amount for the 10 rocker cover bolts on an X20XEV please??

    PS - I did search but couldn't find it

    TBH u really dont need a torque wrench for these - just do em up hand tight then a little bit more.

    If u want to be technical then the correct rating for all models except 2.2 is 8Nm.... 2.2 is 10 Nm for anyone interested

    Torque settings are important for rocker covers - too tight and you'll pinch the gasket and it will leak
