Verifying torque specs for water pump on Gen. 1 Tiguan

3958 Views 1 Reply 1 Participant Last post by  plova
I have changed the water pump twice before on the Tiguan and cannot remember the torques specs for the 5 bolts to the block. Have the sequence but cannot find where I have written it down. I have found online in the audi workshop manual the spec being 9 nm (6.63 ft. lbs) which seems low to me.

Any help ?

Follow up for anyone else out there needing this info. 9nm is the correct torque for the housing to block. At least this is what is working for me.
