Limited supplies, so I presume limited sizes too.
This is an awesome deal, thank you! I'm picking mine up this weekend.

I will be replacing the clutch in my MKIV Jetta in a few weeks. Just about to 250k miles and the throwout bearing is starting to rattle more than I'm comfortable with. I have all the parts and bolts needed but don't yet have a flywheel holder or triple square bits. I'm wondering if anyone near Bloomington, MN, has these and would be willing to borrow them to me for a weekend?

a standard box wrench works for holding the flywheel, put a transmission bolt into the block thru the box end and put the open end up against a dowel pin.

Don't bother with the local auto parts tripple squares, you'll probably round them off.

soo... I unfortinately killed my jsw. Hit a deer with the headlight while doing 70. Total loss. Thankfully i got gap insurance. Also i think something was weird with the ecu. sparratic Comminucation errors with so many things. INS wants 1500 for it. be a really good parts car. Took the radiator out so it cant be driven. it only took out bolt ons. still straight structure wise. So now i will have a red mk6 jsw with a pano roof.
