I have a 2015 Encore. The AC condenser hose/drainage hose is leaking. I have purchased the replacement and will be doing the job myself. I am looking for the torque specs on the attachment bolts (one at the radiator and another - not sure what it is connected to). Can anyone point me to a place I can find this information?
Thanks!

Normally bolts that simply attach something and are not safety related brakes, suspension etc. you judge the amount of force by the size of the bolt.

MelsRegal. Thanks. While not a safety thing I guess my concern is tight enough to not leak refrigerant

According to the factory manual, both the condenser hose bolts torque to 16 lb ft. (22 Nm).
