You need to review your high-school physics book buddy . Remember it takes a lot more force to start moving something than once it's moving, all depending on the coefficient of friction of both surfaces. If the nut moves, it was WAY undertorqued. If it clicks, it could be undertorqued, but probably not by more than 15% at the most, so not a huge deal. But if you want it torqued correctly, only way to do that is to loosen it first then retighten it .
