Customer Question

Can you please tell me what the water pump flange bolts torque settings are for my 1999 Peugeot 306.  It is an1800 and a 16 valve.

The Haynes manual says 30Nm but it seems very high to me for this size of bolt.  I want to avoid stripping the thread in the block by doing them too tight and I don't want them too loose so that they come out and do serious damage to the engine.

I SAW THAT YOU PROVIDED ANSWERS RIGHT AWAY AND THAT IF I DO NOT GET AN SATISFACTORY ANSWER I DO NOT HAVE TO PAY ...................  I cannot wait and must have a definite  answer before 9 a.m. tomorrow, please.  OTHERWISE I SHALL JUST TIGHTEN THEM AS I THINK FIT.

So if your answer is delayed beyond 9 am tomorrow 10 March 2015  then it won't be an answer at all AND I WILL NEED THE RETURN OF MY £13.

Many thanks
