rear diff. bushings 4kq
It is becmning increaingly apparent that it is about time (probably past
time) to replace the rear diff. bushings in my 87 4kq.
(1) any special, unique-to-Audi tools required? There was a post in
the past 2 days pointing out that Audi engineers seems to think that every
screw, bolt, or fastener on the car must be removed with a tool unique
for that job. The person who keeps the q runnning these days is an
excellent Acura mechanic, but he prefers not to work on German cars
because of the almost one-of-a-kind tools that are seldom used except on
red, UrQs built between February 5 and March 12 only if it snowed less
then 7 cm on the preceding tuesday (so I exaggerate, so what!)
Seriously though. Anything special in the way of tools required to
replace 4 of the rear bushings?
(2) Source for them at a decent price? I have been less than thrilled
with my usual parts supplier recently. Forgot to order some things for
me then on another order forgot that he had ordered them for me and never
shipped them. He also promised to get back to me on 2 UrQs he was
looking at buying to see if I was interested in one of them. Been 6
weeks and still no word. None of this is fatal, but maybe it is time for
me to begin to look for additional parts suppliers for the car. Linda at
Carlsen? Aftermarket folks?
Thanks a bundle.
