    Just like the title states, can someone with a Haynes manual or something similar tell me the correct ft/lbs torque for the Tow Hook. I need to know because I purchased the tow hook from another member recently.

    Thanks,
    Jason

    Sorry its not in the Haynes (yes I checked!)

    You can look at the radial lines, however our tow hook bolts only have 2 lines not the typical none or 3 (SAE). Nor are there any grade marking which is typical for metric. Your next best bet is measure the threads and diameter and "google" a bolt grade chart or something similar to see what would be rated based off the threads. Bolt torque specs are determined by material, thread, thread pitch, diameter, and grade (all of which play factors into "torque" specs).

    I would probably just call a Toyota service center and ask, or stop by on the way home from work if I was concerned enough to worry about it.
