Here's a pretty complete list: https://www.volvo-forums.com/t23736-tor ... tening.htm

I've never used a torque wrench on any of those though. I just do them 'tightenuf'. Or to put it another way, you just develop a feel for it. Never had a problem.

The clearances are so tight that about the only thing I can get a torque wrench on are the water pump bolts and the tensioner bolts. There just isn't room to get to the idler pulley and tensioner pulley, at least with my torque wrenches.
