Ford Taurus Owners Manual: Technical specifications

Wheel Lug Nut Torque Specifications

WARNING:

When a wheel is installed, always remove any corrosion, dirt or foreign materials present on the mounting surfaces of the wheel or the surface of the wheel hub, brake drum or brake disc that contacts the wheel. Make sure that any fasteners that attach the rotor to the hub are secured so they do not interfere with the mounting surfaces of the wheel. Installing wheels without correct metal-to-metal contact at the wheel mounting surfaces can cause the wheel nuts to loosen and the wheel to come off while your vehicle is in motion, resulting in loss of control.

Retighten the lug nuts to the specified torque within 100 miles (160 kilometers) after any wheel disturbance (such as rotation, flat tire, wheel removal).


Note: Inspect the wheel pilot hole


Note: Inspect the wheel pilot hole and mounting surface prior to installation. Remove any visible corrosion or loose particles.
