    09a re and re

    the box is already out, undo the bell housing and replace, thats why they sell them as spares. i know i would, but its your box to do what you want.

    Pulling car... Again.

    theres clearly been a chimps tea party at the fitters with your car. maybe they lifted it not on the jack point, they screwed something to make you spend on a alignment.

    Wandering/floating(?) at highway speeds after alignment

    FWIW + IMO if i were you maybe you should run over the techs foot as he/she is lazy for not getting it to 0 unless something is bent, the toe should be at or very close to 0, same setting both sides. IMO if not it will zig zag.

    i would never angle tighten a bolt into shallow cast iron or any aluminium thread because after its done at first build it will pull the thread away next time out, only a steel nut is safe for tty in my opinion. tty must of been a cent cheaper then loctite for vw. vw want to sell new parts.
