unless you a building a long block engine or replacing wheels or brakes, you dont need a torque wrench,Did it work. Were you trying to take the front bumper off. I want to replace mine, but the tool is really expensive like you said.
just say "click" AvE style when you think its about right, problem solved!In 37 years of driving l have never used a torque wrench to replace wheel nuts.
I’ve owned a range of cars from a 1932 Standard Nine to a Ferrari Mondial t.
Generally as tight as you can get them with the included wheel nut wrench (or a normal wheel nut wrench) seems fine. I’ve never had a wheel come loose or found loose wheel nuts when checking my wheels.
