2007 Toyota Matrix Question: torque in foot pounds for drive shaft

 

Question

I am doing my basic maintenance this time and don't have any technical manuals. For the 30K maintenance I am to re-torque the drive shaft bolt and have not done this before, but now work at a place that has the correct tools and figured I could do it myself. What is the correct torque in foot pounds? Also is there one resource/manual that is worth having to do some maintenance and minor repairs myself? Thanks, Dave

    The front axle hub nuts are set to 159 ft/lb but no one ever re-torques them as part of a maintenance service. As for workshop manual information autozone have some workshop manuals online for free for popular vehicles once you register on there website. There is a company that independent auto repair shops "buy" their information from that offer a very reasonable service to do it yourselvers. You get a one year subscription to year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... great quality information same as the professionals have ,much better than generic workshop manuals from parts stores, much cheaper than the factory manual. http://www.alldatadiy.com/
