    308's fitted finally

    Thanks to dannysport18, I've now got the 308s sorted on me 1.8 SRi mk4.

    However as its dark, and he has to be up at like 3, theres just one bolt that we didnt do up properly... but hey that can be done tomorrow morning...

    big shout out to the guy!

    "bolts through the steering knuckle" ?

    I'm guessing you mean the bolts that hold the wheel hub onto the knuckle...

    If so then:
    Stage 1 = 90 Nm
    Stage 2 = Angle tighten 30*
    Stage 3 = Angle tighten 15*

    Steering knuckle to suspension strut
    Stage 1 = 50 Nm
    Stage 2 = 90 Nm
    Stage 3 = Angle tighten 45*
    Stage 4 = Angle tighten 15*

    Caliper carrier to knuckle = 95 Nm

    Caliper to carrier guide pin bolts = 28 Nm

    Ive got all the others here but wont list them in case u dont need them
