When putting wheels back on a car, you place them on and torque them to spec. Now, most if not all manufacturers say to re-torque them after 50 miles. What is the procedure for this?
- Do you just make sure they are all torqued?
- Loosen one bolt at a time and re-torque it?
- Loosen and re-torque more than one?
- Or what?
I've been doing number one for a while, but I don't recall ever seeing an "official" way to do this in service manuals. I would assume this just means check them. But then the word re-torque implies some kind of loosening and re-tightening, no? Or am I thinking about it too much?
