    Very new to site!

    I am about to have a go at changing the head gasket on my 1.4 astra, N Reg 95, I understand that I need to tighten the head to certain torque number can any one tell me what that is.

    Thanks ever so much, oh... is there anything else I should be aware of that will help with the job.

    Follow jam On Twitter
    First of all you should renew the bolts with new ones.
    Stage 1 tighten 25nm
    Stage 2,3 & 4 tighten 60degrees

    Remember to spread evenly outwards from the middle.
    Its a jam thing
