Volvo S40 V50 C30 C70 – Diesel Engine Torque Specs (2004 to 2013)

by: Alexandra M.

List of all Volvo S40 (2004 to 2013), Volvo V50 (2004 to 2013), Volvo C30 (2006 to 2013) and Volvo C70 (2006 to 2013) 1.6D, 2.0D, D3, D4 and D5, Diesel Engine bolts and nuts tightening torque specifications.

Cautions:

– Screws coated with locking fluid or sealant must always be replaced with new screws during reinstallation.
– Screws coated with a locking fluid or self locking nuts must be replaced with new when reinstalled.
– Always use new screws and nuts when angle tightening. Any exceptions to this rule will be indicated in the method.
– Only nuts and screws which are not self locking can be reused provided that they are in good condition.
