Torque the driveshaft bolts

Just replaced my driveshaft, used the 101 projects book.
I am missing the torque settings for the gearbox side.
Who can tell me how tight they should be?

Also whats a good workshop book that contains this info?


Oh and pro tip; dont remove the manifold like the books says. Thank me later

Yup, the factory service manual.

The inner CV joint to output flange tightening torque values are as follows:

M8....29 ft/lbs (39 Newton Meters)

M10...60 ft/lbs (81 Newton Meters)

Use blue (medium strength) Loctite.

Not anymore, Porsche moved away from printed versions more than a decade ago and now it only available online with a PIWIS TSI annual subscription.

The Bentley service manual is very useful and generally gives the appropriate torque values.
