mk4 R32 front cv boots replacement info.
« on: June 12, 2019, 06:12:41 pm »
Hi all,

I need some tech info on removal and installation of the front cv axles on my mk4 R32. I cannot find the torque settings for the bolts on the gearbox side and the nut on the axle side, Doctor Google doesn't show me any thing helpful. 

Help please.

For the Axel nuts just tight as you can get em, they keep your wheel bearing together, I usually use a 3/4" Drive Power Bar with Two meters of pipe slid over the handle for extra ooga ooga power.

the Axle nuts at a Guess if they are the ones im thinking. bit of Decent threadlocker on the threads and crank them up to 40-60ft/lb?

Thanks for the info. ft/lbs sounds a bit much, possibly 40-60 NM?
