The torque spec. is 133 Nm (98 lb-ft). Also tighten them in a star pattern if you didn't know that already.

Werd! I always go back around in a circle after the star. Just to make sure everything is tighten down.

Hi cisco. :wavey: If I access the 2007 Fusion Owners Manual online, through the Ford site, it recommends 135NM (100 lb-ft).

I only double checked the specs you provided because I knew my 2007 MKZ Owners Manual recommends 135 NM (100 lb-ft), as I always re-torque the lugnuts when I have my tires rotated.

I know it is not much of a difference, but it is a little higher torque rating.

Good luck! :cheers:

Thanks for the heads up. That is weird that the service manual and owners manual would be different. Like you said it isn't much but still should be the same.
