Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
2002 Land Rover Freelander 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 150000 miles

I changed the seal on differential and retightened nut on front, now I have a noise when backing up, is the nut supposed to be torqued, and if so what are specs?

Rear Differential Pinion Nut (2) (3) Ft. Lbs 140 Nm(190)

(2)DO NOT reuse old nut or bolt.
(3)Continue to tighten pinion nut until pinion preload torque-to-turn is 15.0-24.8 INCH Lbs. (1.7-2.8 N.M). If pinion preload is higher, replace collapsible spacer. DO NOT tighten pinion nut to more than 275 Ft. Lbs. (373 N.M), or collapsible spacer will be compressed too far
