Front Hub bolts torque specs needed!

Post by SoobyToo58 »

Can anyone provide me with the correct torque specs for Front Hub mounting bolts?
I am replacing the Front Hubs and Bearings on my 05 Baja. I have the

"Haynes Repair Manual" 89101
Subaru Legacy & Forester 2000 thru 2006
Includes Legacy Outback and Baja


but they are nowhere to be found for any of the models included in that book.

Hope it helps from SM Front Axle Drive shaft section

9) Apply sufficient grease to oil seal lip portion.
Specified grease
SHELL 6459N
CAUTION:
• If specified grease is not available, remove
bearing grease and apply Auto Rex A instead.
• Do not mix different types of grease.
10) Install disc cover to housing the three bolts.
Tightening torque:
18 N·m (1.8 kgf-m, 13.0 ft-lb)
11) Attach hub to ST1 securely.
12) Clean dust or foreign particles from the polished
surface of hub.
13) Using ST2, press bearing into hub by driving inner
race.
ST1 927080000 HUB STAND
ST2 927120000 HUB INSTALLER
E: INSPECTION
When hub is removed, replace bearing with new
one.
CAUTION:
• If bearing is faulty, replace it as a set with
new bearing set.
• Replace the removed oil seal with new one.

Hi Reddog,
Thank you for responding to my question!
I'm assuming that SM means the Subaru shop manual?

Can you possibly provide all the necessary Front Axle Drive shaft section drawings and procedures from the Subaru shop manual?

I replaced my Rear Hub/bearing units last year which I purchased as a unit so I didn't have to press the old bearings out or the new ones
in. I haven't bought the Front Bearings or Front Hubs and seals and snap rings yet.
Are the Front Wheel Bearings installed/pressed into the Front Steering Knuckle?
The Subaru tools you mentioned (ST1 927080000 HUB STAND & ST2 927120000 HUB INSTALLER) are discontinued but I just bought a Bearing Adapters Puller Install Removal Tool Set.
Do the Front Hubs have mounting bolts like the rear hubs or are they installed inside the mounted bearings? If they don't have mounting bolts like the rear hubs then of course that would explain why my Haynes Shop Manual doesn't have torque specs for them.

Thanks again!

What you've done already has been a big help and now having the FSM is an even bigger help and will be in the future as well.
Thanks a lot Reddog!
