Hi, anyone know the wheel nut torque for a 2019 with aluminum wheels. My searches yielded nothing.
Thanks you

The official users manual that I've downloaded for my 2016 says on page 400 - tightening torgue 88 to 108 Nm.

It's very easy to search the pdf for things like that (ctrl-f).

Thank you, that sounds easier than searching the book.

In this case not too difficult to find in the manual. People seem reluctant to look in car Owners Manuals for some reason, yet probably 80% of the 'what does this mean?' or 'how do I?' questions asked on the Facebook group (and probably about 60% on here) have the answer right there in your glovebox, with no guesses or misleading information.

Admittedly if you're not used to looking things up in reference books (a skill that doesn't seem to be taught at school so much), then it helps to know how to start:

Go to the index at the back.
Look up Wheel.
Wheel covers is on page 9-17. Not that useful so look up Tyre - How to change a tyre is on page 9-13.
So around page 9-13 to 9-17 is where stuff to do with wheels and removing/fitting them is likely to be.
Turn to page 9-13 as it's likely to say when fitting a wheel back on what to tighten the nuts to.
Skim through the headings to see if there's anything relevant over the next couple of pages.
And there it is on the top of the middle column of page 9-17: 'Tightening torque 88 to 108 Nm'
