Just in case you’re working on a 2014 Acura MDX, pay attention to the wheel nut specs, as nut size and torque differ from those on the 2013 MDX.
While the 2013 MDX require a 22 mm wrench, the 2014 model features 19 mm hex size wrench. Wheel nut torque has also changed. The 22 mm hex-size nuts require 94 ft.-lbs. , the 2014 model’s 19 mm hex nuts require 80 ft.-lbs.
If you’re accustomed to working on the older MDX, you’ll naturally quickly discover the need for a different wrench, but be aware of the reduced torque value requirement.
