Torque wrench for front control arm 996 4S

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

today I reinstalled the front control arm. Unfortunately I could not find a way to apply a torque wrench to the M12 connection to the side member. Neither on the screw nor on the nut is sufficient space.

 

Has anyone a solution for that? Do I need a special torque wrench?

 

Thanks for help!

No, you need a crows foot adaptor:

Just be sure to attach it to the torque wrench at a right angle as to do otherwise is to alter the ultimate torque reading.

I wish to thank you, I did not know that the crows foot had to be at a right angle, got to replace the front boots.

It can be used at any angle, but any angle other than 90 degrees to the torque wrench requires an adjustment to the get the desired torque from the actual reading:
