Torque Spec Request (and bolt type!) - 2002 C230 Rear Differential
Getting my 2002 C230 Sport Coupe back tomorrow. I am going to top off the rear differential, clean it, and see how long it lasts before/if it leaks.
sooooo... I want to tighten/check the bolts on the pumpkin just in case they backed off, or need to be tightened.
So without having the car....
What are they? 10mm or 12mm bolts I imagine, or something else?
What is the torque spec? I imagine it would be bad to just 'tighten' them for the heck of it. Also, I imagine it would be best to do an 'alternating' pattern and not just go around in a circle (never good for gasket/seal).
Any other tips/advice? I already have a 14mm hex on order to check the fill hole!
