2002 Kia Rio Question: Where can I obtain a front wheel bearing / hub / axle assembly drawing?

I need to see how the hub, bearings, spacer and axle are put together. After re-assembling with new bearings, there is still play in the bearings even after tightening the axle nut to 145 ft/lbs. The axle nut will not tighten further.
