None......Yet???
In a previous thread I mention that I bought an A5 Jetta TDI 5spd used and just had the DMF let go. As I'm tearing down the engine to get the transmission out I found out that the original transmission was replaced with one from an A4. The transmssion had worked great, but there were definte modifications to make it fit. Unfortunately when i took the transmission mounting bolts out the were completely galled and filled with aluminum thus the threads are totally stripped out. So much for stretch torque bolts.

Any suggestions. Do I go old school hot rod and drill/tap for new bolts and put them in there at same torque and call it good?
