Glass Torque?

I'm replacing a shattered rear lift hatch and need to re-attach the struts. Does anyone know the proper torque setting for tightening the nut onto the stud that goes thru the hole in the glass?

1. Position the backlite glass onto the hard top and install the bolts (3).
2. Tighten the bolts to 10 N·m (90 in. lbs.).
3. Position the trim covers (2) back onto the hinges and seat fully.


Is this what you were looking for?

EDIT: After looking at it again, I don't think I can find what you are looking for. I wouldn't tighten them too much considering the ones that hold the glass onto the top are only tightened to 90 in. lbs. As long as the bracket doesn't move, I'd call it good.

Thanks. I'll find an app converting in lbs. to ft lbs. I may go by the Jeep dealer and ask.

I'd probably check with a reputable windshield repair center, I'm sure they do this type of repair fairly often, not just on Wranglers. If it was me, I'd call them before I'd start torquing down. Similar story, replaced a toilet, and thought one more 1/4 turn on the floor hold down bolts, cracked the porcelain on the stupid new toilet!

to convert in-lbs to ft-lbs, you just divide by 12
