Can anyone tell me torque setting for rear wheel on '03 GT

I removed the wheel to get a new tire installed and can't find the torque specifications.

On my 04 GT the specs are:

• Offer up the rear wheel with spacing washer to
the rear wheel drive and hand-tighten all wheel
studs.

• Working in diagonally opposite sequence, tighten
the outer wheel studs to 50 Nm.

• Fully tighten the screw in the centre.

• Fully tighten the outer wheel studs in diagonally
opposite sequence.

X Tightening torque:
Wheel studs
Initial torque ................................................. 50 Nm
Final torque ................................................ 105 Nm

I assume the 03 is the same but don't know for sure.

Thanks for the help. FYI, BAK04GT I confirmed that setting with a dealer.

I think the rear wheel studs are 77.5 ft lbs or 105 Nm. I have an 04 GT and that is what I think the manual states.

Considering what the bolts are expected to hold in place, that value doesn't come as much of a surprise...
