:eek:
Hi, I have just refurbished by ML270CDi injectors (155k miles) and need to know the REAL torque values for the clamp bolts. I have read that the correct values is 7Nm +90Deg AND I habe read that it is 7Nm +90 +90 ......Would someone please confirm the CORRECT value as i really do not want to strip the threads.

Thanks for the tip but this information has been "collected" from all over the place and other forums. I though that it just needed a clean thread for clarity.

Thanks. I can see that the values indicated are for the fuel feed line to fuel rail - complete assembly of fuel rail for petrol engine by the illustration.

Are the torque values for the diesel injector clamping screws the same as this, since they are individually clamped and not part of an assembly?

Thanks again 43SQD.

Anyone in Europe/Australasia know the correct torque for diesel injector clamp? There are conflicting values on all the forums and it will be useful to see the official line or AR on this.... 7Nm+90 or 7Nm +90+90 ...?

I can't access the WIS you're looking for, but I can tell you that the values you've quoted are incorrect. A torque value is in Nm (only). This "+90Deg" business is nonsense.

Thanks DrX. I agree. 7Nm is a very low torque value too.

Surely someone knows ..... Help!! Thanks in advance!:)

The main dealer has confirmed 7Nm + 90 +90 ... so there is a surprise!

Thanks for all help..:thumbsup:
