Hello and Welcome! I'm Billy and I will assist you with your inquiry. I understand that having car problems can be frustrating so please feel free to ask if any further info is needed.
If you get prompted for a Premium service or a phone call, please ignore that, cause I don't think it is needed at this point.
My apologies for the delay, thank you for your patience.

Which engine do you have?

If you have the 4.0 liter engine, the torque for the axle hub nut (hub nut and washer assembly) would be: 250 N.m.

I had already posted the answer. Apparently you didn't receive it. I will post it again here, sorry for the inconvenience:

Hello,

The torque is also 250 N.m. for this engine (front hub nut and washer assembly).

Cheers.

Expert:  Billy replied 18 days ago.

I will double check.

You do have the 3.0 liter petrol engine, right?

Expert:  Billy replied 18 days ago.

OK.

Expert:  Billy replied 18 days ago.

It's basically the same. It's stated: 274 +/- 40 N.m.

I will include the details in PDF:

Thankyou .but then do you know why then the wheel hub locks up at that ?
Expert:  Billy replied 18 days ago.

Actually this is weird. And I thought that the number was too high. I did check a couple of places, and they specifically mention 4x4.

Expert:  Billy replied 18 days ago.

I'm going to check one more place. But those I already checked should be factory service information.

Expert:  Billy replied 18 days ago.

OK. I got the full info, still showed the same. You can check it out, on page 60 or so. You have the procedures as well. This will confirm.

Thank you for your trust. Cheers.
