    Angry OMG wtf is with the iBR retaining bolts torque number in service [email protected]#

    I just squashed the freaking iBR mounting spots wtf! Service manual says 106 in-lb, whenever I adjust my 1/4 click wrench I double check it's value with my other digital gauge [email protected]# it's set to 100.

    When it rains it pours, now I have to cut this off and add somekind of a bushing.

    That s*cks man !!

    I'm normally also very precise with torques, following manual etc.
    But had some issues as well with iBr bolts and clamps with low torque when following the manual.

    With all the plastic, molded nuts and aluminium threads I nowadays just use my own finger feeling with anything below 20 Nm

    Hopefully this was the last "rain" for you now!

    The head's all torn up, and the screw looks like its bent.... Won the lottery on a bad screw? Or did your wrench lie to you? I've never seen that on 8 lb-ft of torque.... Ever....

    Also, if its measured in inch lbs, shouldn't even be using a torque wrench. That only counts for first time assembly. The threads are stretched after that, and the spec no longer applies.

    Just tighten until it feels good. (that's what she said)

    Was going to say that statement is really only relevant for torque to yield fasteners but then I noticed on his scanned shop manual page it calls for new fasteners so I am guessing you are right, these must be TTY?

    These are not stretch bolts, the only reason it says to use new ones is because they come with pre-applied thread locker. Actually, later on in the manual, where it gives assembly steps, it says to use new bolts or clean old ones and apply blue loctite. Besides, you ain't stretching a big metal bolt when you're tightening plastic.

    I don't know what happened, torque wrench was definitely set at 100 in-lb, if it was any other location I would have seen what was happening while it was being torqued

    Depending on your torque wrench the feel or click when it reaches the set torque on low settings can be almost un noticeable.

    This was a mini wrench, goes up to only 220 in-lb ..always use it on all the 80 in-lb bolts and always verify it after adjusting it using my digital wrench. Weird stuff, if I ever have to take this thing out I wont use a torque wrench, just snug it by hand and that's it.

    Looks like it's made to crush like that if it's over tightened. Trim off and smooth out the damaged plastic, add a washer and should be good as new.

    Got the wrench at Canadian Tire?

    I see guys in the states all the time with the same problem, buying from Harbor Freight.
