Re[2]: Angle Wrench US2598 Source?

          In a message dated 97-07-07 13:12:15 EDT, 
          Anyone know of sources for special Audi door hinge tool 
          "angle wrench US2598?"  Is Zelenda my best bet or some other 
          source?  I think I can state with confidence that no 
          commonly used tool, including metric flare nut wrenches, 
          crows-foot wrenches, skewed socket drives, etc. will work 
          for the front door hinges of an 1988 90q.

      How about 8.99 for a Craftsman wrench and five minutes with an 
      oxy/ace torch?  See if a local buddy with a torch set might be 
      willing to bend one up for you.

special tools required.)  I suppose I could buy a few wrenches and 
experiment.  Does it resemble one of those offset brake wrenches, such
