Lose Wing Strut Mount Bolt

October 29, 2009

During a recent refuel on one of our Cessna 182 aircraft a squeaking sound was noted when weight was applied to the wing strut step pad.  The cause turned out to be an under torqued lower wing strut attach bolt.  NHQ/LGM recommends the torque on all four wing strut attach bolts be checked on each of our Cessna aircraft at their next 100hr/annual inspection.
