RE: how do you break an axle nut?
If this is like a 44--
The axle bolt should _only_ be removed w/ the wheel on the ground. It
will require a cheater on your breaker bar. Lots of torque for the
44. (Maybe 300 nm plus a quarter turn? Find someone w/ a book to
check for sure!) Audi sez always replace the bolt.
For the nut on top of the camber plate, I made a tool by grinding out
a 180 deg. section from the middle of a 22 mm deep socket. I think
Bentley has a picture. Seems like only 60 nm on the nut, so grinding
the socket isn't a big deal.
P.S. Still not subbed-- just perusing the daily message base. Keep up
the good work!
