i had a hard time finding it also but i did end up finding it. Its suppose to be 133 ft/lbs. Then there is a piece that bolts on to the bearing,(you probly had to use an extention to get to them)8 bolts. The torque on them is 140ft/lbs. and i was told that the large nut, i think its about 35 mm should be just snug. The lug nuts should be 140ft/lbs also.
