Hub E-Torx Bolt size.

Post by Ben850 » Fri May 13, 2016 7:06 pm

I am replacing a front hub on the '94 850 black Wagon I had bought last summer.

I Need to pick up the E-torx socket for the hub bolts tomorrow.

Can someone tell me what size it is so I do not have to buy a set?
Thanks.

A full set from E6 to E16 cost less than $10 and there are several locations that use them. My guess is that you will pay as much for 1.
'95 855 T-5R M, Panther - 22/28 mpg
'98 S70 GLT, Lil' Red 25/32 mpg

Thanks Steve. I think the new one comes with them, but I'll keep that in mind.

This is the '94 N/A Wagon I've had in storage until last week.
It needs a little cleaning up, but the drivers front hub bearing was the only thing keeping it off the road.

Oh, the wheel speed sensor ring was taken off completely so I have a new axle as well.
The hub bolts turned out to be E-16.
No matter, I had to get a salvage knuckle. The original bearing is welded inside.

My left Hub tapped out with light hammer. The right needed a hydraulic press.

Looking good !
