I am changing the front wheel bearings on my 1998 XK8. What TOURQUE do I put on the retainer nut on the back of the wheel? and do I need a special pin to lock it in place? The wrench that I got for taking off the retainer nut has a slot in it so the pin can be sheared off when it is removed.

Hello and welcome to justanswer.comThe torque on that ABS hub nut is 200-243 ft-lbs. After you torque it you need to install a new locking pin which is available through Jag.
