    2004 Kia Rio Cinco Rear Wheel Bearing Nut Torque

    What is the correct torque for the rear wheel bearing nut. The repair manual doesn't show this.

    Those cars are supposed to be disposable, that's why you can't find it.

    1994 Kia Rio + 16 model years since then = Probably


    By the way, you can probably visit a dealer service department and they'd tell you if you asked nicely.

    Oops, I meant 2004. LOL.. That's what I get for reading Tech Talk threads about 1994 cars in other Firefox tabs.

    Its a standard tapered roller bearing, you set it like you would any other. If I have to go into the specifics of how to set bearing preload on a setup such as this, you really should not be fucking with it.

    Doubtful. If I threw a wrench at you, you would not be living. I throw Snap On wrenches like Chuck Norris throws Roundhouse kicks.

    Slim chance, but maybe. Sometimes, we can't stand being bothered by people who just want "free advice", especially when we are busy. If a person doesn't know the info or can't find it, they shouldn't be touching it.

    You searched incorrectly. Front wheel bearing torque is that, but the rear is a standard double taper roller bearing.

    Torque them to 190 ftlbs and see what happens.

    Seriously? Many non-driven rear bearings are tapered rollers and need to have a proper preload adjustment. A lot of cars have a cartridge unit (like Civics) and are pretty much the same as most front bearings in FWD cars where you just torque to a certain spec. The difference is that the double taper bearings are two separate bearings so you're actually setting load of the two bearings in relation to each other. The cartridge bearings are just a single bearing unit and you're just torquing against the single solid center sleeve of the bearing.

    What I want to know is why the hell Kia uses double taper rollers? They must be cheaper, because there isn't really any other reason to use them nowadays on the rear of a FWD car. Actually, if they're a torsion beam rear, that would probably explain it. But it's still most likely because the bearings are cheaper.
