Question about Hitch Installation...

...The dealer never gave me the instructions and I need to know what torque to tighten the bolts to... I already did it, but now I'm worried I torqued them too tight! I couldn't find it any where on the web... Let me know... Thanks in advance,
D.

From an X3 world post by "Flyer1":

"BTW...one important part of the install not listed on the X3 world write up was the torque spec on the mounting bolts. They should be torqued to 71Nm."

Good Luck!
