Default Front Axle Torque Spec

Can anyone tell me the torque spec for the 10mm triple square (12 point - 6 bolts) for the front axle to the transmission and also the huge bolt to the wheel bearing and the axle.
Thanks.

This is for a 2000 Audi A6 4.2L Quattro.
Thanks again.

Default The axle bolt is 140 lb/ft +180 degree turn. The small triple square bolts are 40lb/ft IIRC.

Default Thanks for teh quick reply! How bout the bolts on the upper link?

I was reading on the tech page, (http://www.audiworld.com/tech/wheel.html) and I see of the pages stated to be 85lb/ft or 90lb/ft for the axle bolt and 30lb/ft for the triple square bolts. Are they only apply for A4? Because that is a huge difference in the lb/ft.

Also, if possible, can anyone please let me know the torque spec for the nut on the bolt of the upper links (control arms and the tie rod) The link above said 30lb/ft, I want to make sure on that as well. Thanks.

Default I got those numbers out of the Bentley, just now. 30 lb/ft on the pinch bolt sounds good to me..

Thanks alot Kris.
I got the Bentley too.. paid for $99 + tax/shipping.
And I only got 2 S/N. (bought it 3 yrs ago) and my computer crashed so many times since than (window, so what do you expect) and now I have no more S/N to use my Bentley! I really think the way they restrict the copy of Bentley is VERY STUPID! considering I paid $99 for it!!!
