Hey all, good debate and exactly the reason I wanted to develop the How To here. I’ll copy all the best practice over when we are finished.
Hi Phil. I appreciate you trying to get to the bottom of thisI’m going to take a bolt out and check that. I’ll be back with what I find.
Paul that’s not a challenge, just me wanting to be thorough. Also I will post pictures of my Golf bolt failure, appreciate your opinion on it.
Just for info only this bolt it appears may no longer be available from Audi uk / tps but could be ordered from audi tradition in germany.
It’s not off topic at all, it’s a motor bike jack / stand. I use it for all of those jobs where you have to precariously balance a lump of wood on a trolly jack. Supporting your engine on its sump, lifting your gearbox into position, supporting your exhaust to replace the rubbers, dropping your rear axle etc etc.
