A quick phone call to the service dept of your local Fiat dealer should get the info you want.

If not try a Google search ????

If it's a conical wheel bearing it is likely that it will need to be just nipped up tight and then turned back about a quarter turn. Check the old one before you take it off to see if there's a little bit of play in there to see if I am right. You should in this case be able to tighten the old one up a bit quite easily.

I believe the hubs utilised for the Alko axles are the original spec Fiat ones not Alko's own.
Therefore the torque setting will be the one recommended by Fiat, which from the Fiat specifications is 45 daNm (bloody tight) that is for the quoted M33 x 1.5 nut.

45 daNm = 450 N.m or 330 ft lb
