    Default Torque specs for oil filter housing?

    Going to do my spring oil change in the next week or so. This is my first one on the Spyder ( I do them on all my other vehicles/toys) as the dealer did the last one at the 600 mile service. I have a service manual and have located the torque specs for the oil tank/pan plugs, but can't seem to find them for the oil filter and HCM filter housings. I was just wondering if any one would know them or know where they are located in the manual. I see they have specs with the different type of fasteners, is that what people are using? Thanks all for any responses.

    Both the same...11 Nm (97 lbf-in). The torque specs in the service manual are always shown in the blow-up at the beginning of the appropriate section...Lubrication System and Hydraulic Control Module in this case.

    Thanks, appreciate that Nancytoys! I looked through that section a couple of times, but I will check again! Found it!I was looking in the maintenance section rather then the blow up at the beginning. Thanks again!

    Even tho you're using a torque wrench be sure the setting is accurate so as not to overtighten; too easy to strip out the threads on those filters.

    My torque wrenches are digital, so should be fairly accurate, but will still be careful after some stories I have heard!
