I think Chitty has got the hub and axle description confused, I believe the axle should both be 200NM+180 regardless of whether they are hex or triple square ( 12 point) both should be a 16mm bolt. Note the manual says it should be tightened fully in 2 stages both OFF the ground

70Nm +90 is for a 12mm hub bolt

Here attached a pdf for the front suspension Mk5 Golf 2004-2009, its from the official VW ERWIN factory manual
