Question 08 Nox Wheel Hub

I am setting out to replace the front driver's side hub on my nox this week-end. Just wondering if anyone knows the torque specs for the hub bolts and any other related bolts I may need. Thanks.

If I'm not wrong its 75-80 fore the 4holding bolts and 150-160 for the central bolt.
If the hub is not coming out easy rent slide hummer in canadiantire.

I just got a 06 Saturn Vue and replaced both front hubs and one on the driver side rear.

I TORQUED the wheel bearing bolts to 62 ft lbs or torque. You can easily gauge this when you unbolt them as it should take little effort.

I will say that one of the hubs was replaced a year ago and I was able to pop it loose. The other was the stock hub with 122k miles(driver front). I had to take off the knuckle and had the hub pressed out. It sat soaking for most of the day and was put under full pressure. It say that way for a hour until it finally broke loose a hour later with a huge rusty cloud...

Thanks for the info guys. I have a hub puller that I was able to get from a buddy. It is a heavy duty one that will withstand an impact wrench, should make life a little easier.
